For one of my first brews I figured if the instructions called for 1 can of extract and 2 pounds of table sugar, 3 or 4 pounds of sugar should really boost the alkie potential, right?
So I'm sitting at a meeting in Oklahoma City with a client and my pager goes off. As soon as I can, I call the little woman and get a torrent of filth you wouldn't believe. It seems when she got home from work the airlock had blown off and there was krausen flowing across the bar, down the cabinet doors and onto the carpet.
So I tell her to grab a hose from the garage and try to divert the flow into a bucket-my first(her last) blowoff hose.
I have had a series of non-brewing mishaps that required major household cleanups and are worthy of Hollywood movies, but no one would ever believe them. Of course they all do involve alcohol.
