Perforated Can?

Recommended Posts

Oddest thing I've ever seen.  Tried to pulled the can of Diablo out of the box and it was stuck.  Finally tore it from the cardboard shipping box and noticed that some of the HME has leaked out of the bottom of the can.  Washed the dried HME off and noticed that there was a small perforation on the bottom of the can.  I have never seen this happen before!  The can is not swollen; I don't think it could swell.  Question is do I use it or toss it?  FYI-expiration date is June 2017.

Well, that's not good at all.  Sorry to hear about it.  If it were me, I'd contact customer service on Monday about getting that can replaced.

 

I bought two cans of Diablo during the recent sale and they were both fine.  Maybe I'd better check again, just to be sure.

I was able to send the pic to Mr. Beer's Customer Service via email.  No one is really sure how it happened.  As per Mr. B's return policy my 5 days are up (ordered on 1/22).  Guess I have to stop Beer Squirreling and use those cans as fast as they come in .

Lesson is to always thoroughly inspect ALL packages from ANY COMPANY right away.  Their window on claiming from UPS or FedEx or USPS is limited.

Lesson learned.  At least it was only a $21 loss.

Haha...  now you sound like Hoppy!  They did good by me.  In the end they gave me a $7.99 credit (free shipping) on my next order.  I'm satisfied.

My gut feeling is that they won't be overly-intimidated by Wicket the Ewok!  ;)

Thanks for the offer, Hoppy.  When I made that order it was for 3 of the Chewbeerca recipes, so I'm pretty good for now.  Since I'm down one can of Diablo, I'll either buy another one when the time comes, or just use the hops & LME's in another recipe... perhaps that Bavarian that you turned me onto!

Neither was the Empire....but look what the Ewoks did to them on Endor!

We are missing the critical issue here. What beer would Vader pair with Ewoks???

It will have to be something with Force.... - I can't see him drinking Coors.

I heard that he's on the wagon these days, and is only drinking Vaderade.  Ba-dum-dum!
