Blonde Ale Gone Bad (BAGB)

Well it's obvious by the name, what was supposed too be a simple brew day went dramatically wrong! So wrong that I will not even begin too document here in this post. But a quick run down would go something like this, no ice, dirty equipment and most importantly I forgot too purchase new strain (batch) of yeast. One of the best things I can say about brewing is the amount of creativity you are aloud too have with YOUR creation. I've never been a person to change my own oil or too even change my own tire. But I will say this I can make delicious great beer.....
