After about 3 years on I ended up not being able to brew for about 1.5 years. Things that could have gone wrong did.
I was planning to brew last weekend and smacked my yeast pack. It sat on the counter for a week at 65-70 degrees. Is this a problem?
I was brewing in a new place and didn’t realize my kettle didn’t fit the sink. I added cold water to help cook it down. Would this cause any issue adding cold water to the kettle before dumping it into the carboy?
In pouring into the carboy, I spilled a bunch on the floor. Any tips when you are dumping to prevent spills?
After I top off the carboy to five gallons with cold water, my temperature is still way above what I could pitch my yeast at so now it is sitting waiting to cool. Anything that I should expect, or not expect since I waited so long to pitch?
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
