What was your most unusual addition to beer, something along the lines of fruit, hot sauce, olives, whatever you tossed in the pot or keg. And, how did it turn out?

I think someone was brewing when their daughter sneezed in the wort... Booger beer?

I remember that thread; I started dry heaving when I read the first post!

I saw the How Stuff Works about Beer on the Discovery channel a few nights ago and Dog Fish Head brewed up Theobroma which uses Aztec cocoa powder and cocoa nibs, honey, chilies, and annatto (fragrant tree seeds).

My very first AG batch--what a fiasco, but best beer I ever made. Flies kept getting in the boiling wort, as well as some falling leaves. SN Oak Fly beer
