Kudo's to her for trying, too bad it (possibly) went south on you. Perhaps
you'll end up with a really **AHEM** clean beer.
I'll share one, and it's all about me doing a brain fade.
Somewhat hectic day. First bottling attempt of my first brew.
Got my priming sugar mix made, cooled and dumped into the bucket and set the lid from a pot on to keep crap out.
A few friends are present and we're chatting as I sanitize the auto-siphon and give my layout a once over. Total of maybe 5 minutes max since putting the prime in bucket.
I take the lid off the bucket and notice liquid in the bottom. My brain instantly thinks I didn't drain out the Star-San so I take the bucket to the sink and pour it out. My B.I.L. asks "Wasn't that your priming sugar?".
I stop dead in my tracks, look at the bucket in my hands, look at the sink, repeat this a few more times....
Hang my head and state "Looks like I get to practice that again" while I start to laugh.
Fortunately I actually had another bag of priming sugar for my second attempt.
That mistake got a bit of mileage throughout the evening. I even had of one them stand in front of the sink after putting sugar batch #2 in the bucket so I didn't try pouring it out again.
I'm taking a lesson from my time in racing and adding "Spares Package" to every brew and bottle day list.
