One of my buddies started to barf, another laughed uncontrollably for a few minutes. Most of us just stared at each other in a shocked daze for a few seconds. Lot's of "WTF"s all around.
An immediate unsolicited and unanimous vote ensued for dumping the whole batch. Not even a thought about just boiling it for whoever long to sterilize the wort.
It was one of our most expensive recipes to begin with and it hurt all the way back to the LHMS to pick up enough ingredients for another go.
The second batch was done under a beach umbrella.
LOL This happened to me as well, but halfway into the boil. The bird crap coagulated and remained on to. I quickly we skimmed the crap from the wort. We all decided that if you boiled it for the next 30 min, it would be sanitized.
The beer was dubbed bird **** wit. It was good, but you always thought about the bird **** while drinking. Hmmm, "Is that yeasty wit haze or bird **** haze in my wort haze". For some reason none of my brew club buds would have any. Go figure.
