Don't start brewing while on-call for work. I got called in Friday night mid-session.

Scotch is my tried and true remedy for killing a cold before it gets out of hand.
Drink scotch, now.
Then drink at least 3 more.

You'll thank me tomorrow.

I done something similar except it was mid afternoon and I was hammered when I decided a brew was a good idea. Long story short, I woke up on the floor of the beer room with slayer playing seasons of the abyss on repeat and feeling very seedy I was quite chuffed when I seen the brew no chillin in the fermenter. Beer was good.

Cheers

I almost made liquid malt extract once. About a 75% boil off ratio.

Beer was delicious after a healthy fermenter dilution - certainly no DMS issues.

Don't brew and have "sleepytime cigarretes". That's the rule.

I'm beginning to understand the source of some of your more off-beat threads...

Sleepytime

Roll two bags before bed.

Edit:

Then I read your post:

"I fermented a FWK that was 18 months old and my face went numb, then I stopped breathing because my lungs shut down."

in the Oldest cube thread, and realised the problem. You have been rolling two packets, not bags...

I once,

Brewed a batch, 4 cubes, drinking, and after draining the MT thought **** it, I could run another batch here...

So, long story short - spent about 10 hours in the brewery, remember the first 6 - Next day had filled 8 cubes.


Next morning, wake up, very shady. have to let the dogs out, and walk through the 'brewery' [Downstairs] and there they are '8' cubes - everything else cleaned up and all put away....

First thought, and no shit, first thought was - 'Did SWMBO do a brew?..."

HAHA.

Not proud but it happened.

Beer is rad.
