Anything worth screwing up is worth doing right. First infection, and I'm cheap so like I said, can't say if this qualifies as a disaster till maybe Christmas

Bottle a sixer to take to a friend. About an hour later get a call from SWMBO screaming "WTF Did you do??? yada yada yada"

notice the pool of pale ale in the bottom...not that bad, right?


WRONG!


I think I only lost about 12 beers thankfully! But still...I then got velcrow to keep the picnic taps from falling and used this incident later to rationalize the purchase of perlicks
