Just kidding.

I brewed awhile ago and just dumped water and oxyclean on the yeast cake to let it clean up my carboy.

It started smelling like death a few weeks ago. The wife is not happy that it is still sitting there.

I had to put the tin foil on the top because the smell was so bad. I'd say its been sitting on the counter for well over a month.

Why in God's name is there not a new brew bubbling away in that wasted container?

Sent that puppy to me and I'll put it to work immediately.

hehe I've been tempted to take a bucket of water... add some leftover coffee for color... then dump in a few cartons of cottage cheese mixed with some food coloring or something and post a picture here asking people to "identify my infection". heheh
