I learned that if you think your last batch of beer is a little flavorless all you have to do is open a miller lite or other BMC to get your taste buds back inline. Can't believe i used to think that stuff was drinkable.

I learned that the bottom of a mlt may get a little warm after heating sparge water with turkey fryer and it is best to avoid contact with said bottom.... Drunk.

I learned to keep the bottle capper away from bottle bucket and prevent it from falling into the beer again. #fail. I pulled it out with racking cane as i stirred the coffee and bottling sugar into porter. I almost dunked my arm in Strahan... hahah. Oh well./shrug

I learned when bottling using recycled bottles that the Red Baron bottle capper does not work on Hobgoblin bottles cause of the round top of the bottle.

Why save green bottles? Head down to your nearest bar and ask the bartender to save you some Heineken bottles from the coming night. You'll get tons.

If you're going to drink Mexican beer, suck it up and grab a Modelo. The Negra makes a great beer bottle and the Especial makes a great Apfelwein/Skeeter Pee bottle.



Third from the left... gross.

I just got a very good laugh out of that, thanks. I learned to check my kit before throwing the box away, so I don't lose my priming dme to the garbage men.

Thanks to the last line of this post I've learned to switch off the autocorrect feature in my phone
