I don't know buddy, sanitary conditions are a must for brewing beer. I don't think I could get anything from the dump clean enough to use. Even if I did, the thought of where it came from would be stuck in my head forever. Good luck if you decide to try it, let us know if you live.
On tap: Porter
In process: Mead, Apfelwein
On deck: Holiday something?

There is so much wrong with this post in so many ways. Don't mean to be an EAC, but this seems a little weird.

Note to mods: please ban garrapy2 from any future beer swaps

Personally, I'd steer clear but if you decide to go ahead with it, here's some potential label text:

Dave's Dump Divin' Ale
The secret to this unique brew is the aging process used for the malt extract...toxic chemicals first weaken the metal of the extract can; this allows the essence of other surrounding (secret!) organic and non-organic materials to permeate the extract, giving this brew a "terroir" all its own! Special wild yeast (?) strains contribute subtle esters, phenols and VOCs. Finally, a hint of methane on the nose really brings out the hop aroma.
No signature required.

You have to brew it, include the buckets if they are all inclusive and pass a visual inspection, they will add just that much more horried visions to the brew.

Will add, if you never brewed before and have to research what the heck you need to do, really not worth the effort given what your return is going be.
