This batch was one of my best to date and fun. If you are wondering about the name, my loving fiancee accidentally forgot about sanitation when I was adding the wort to the fermenter. In other words, she stuck her hand in when my funnel's filter started to fall out. Instead of getting upset, I just laughed and nearly dropped all the wort on the floor. Well, no harm done. In fact, I may have her stick her hand in all the time. This beer was an experiment with wyeast 1007 and high lovibond crystal malt. Its hue is a red amber, so it worked to be what I was shooting for. Excellent stuff. I recommend it to all you extract brewers and those brewers ready to move on from kits to extract with specialty grain. You won't be disappointed.
