You clearly haven't balanced your fairy/gnome/bear ratios correctly. It's a delicate balance. You let the bear out of the primary didn't you.

He died. Apparently he was allergic to the pecans in my Southern Pecan ale. I'm waiting for him to float to the top. Hate to take him out of the fermenter and miss out on all hair. Best clarifying agent ever. If I can find a miniature whale, he's going in next. I hear baleen works even better.

SWMBO will never again allow me to ferment in the house with whale. The smell is not even he worst of it...it's all the seabirds it attracts.

I knew there was a reason I was keeping that bald eagle around. His name is Waldorf. I was thinking about adopting another one and naming it Statler. SWMBO's cat is afraid of it which suits me fine. Hate that little f'er. I'm just kidding of course. We don't have a cat.

835. Edging ever closer to the open/wild fermentation beer.

The Stumbling Bumbling Idiot BIPA is a week and a half in the ferementer. I may have to decide this weekend if it's going to be drinkable on it's own....if so, I'll dry hop. I way overshot the target OG due to the cold steeping fiasco (It was 1.080) so it may need more time anyway. If it's still super roasty, I will save it to blend with another beer.

I think I have learned my lesson...no more dares for me after 1000 posts. I don't have it in me to try to top a wild ferment. I'll gladly pass that baton.

Do you think beer will ever become intelligent enough to revolt against us? Then it will start brewing with us as ingredients. Then one beer will probably get the idea to start a forum about it. Then there'll probably be a bunch of beer posting the questions "Did I ruin my human brew?" "Can I add fruit to my human brew kit?" "Should I secondary my human?"
I'm sure one of them will start a thread saying he's an idiot. That's where things probably start to go down hill. Of course all this can be avoided if you keep a good balance of beer fairies and miniature whales in your beer.

Quantum theory all but guarantees that has already happened elsewhere in the universe.
