Hasn't happened yet. I'm finding it very difficult to let go but, I have another that I'm beginning to get very close to. :oops: Life moves on. :wink:
If it's any comfort I have 32 bottles of a bitter brewed with a fair amount of my home grown fuggles. It's rank despite seeming OK at bottling time. There are 32 (from an original 40) as I can't bring myself to pour them down the drain and keep opening 1 in the forlorn hope some miracle will happen. Now I'm back up to speed following the Xmas/New Year hiatus I'm soon going to need the bottles but it's still going to be a wrench - and I bet the number will have dropped further between now and then as I try and keep the faith :cry:

I am about to pour a Beer down the drain because of a "fault" with a sample valve.
