A Beer and a Dog

Bwah! My Oktoberfest & ESB sucked!….

It seems that the hoses on my chiller were leaking into the brew kettle…. and introduced some evil bacteriae into the beer.  When I went to bottle the OKtoberfest it was sour.  I poured it all out.

Later I got to thinking about it… and took a great portion of the ESB to a friend who is experimenting with stilling to still out the alcohol if he is of a mind to do so. 

If one has a good buzz going, the ESB isn’t too bad; so the rest of it, I’ll use to finish off a drinking session that I may have started elsewhere.

I really hate to have to do away with a batch of beer; at least I know what the problem is.  I need to fix the chiller one day.
