Accidentally poured my sanitized water in my brew!

When I was supposed to add 2 gallons of cold water to my wort, I accidentally poured 2 gallons from the sanitizer bucket. Is my beer ruined?

Hate to say it, but I don’t think the yeast will respond well to 2 gallons of sanitizer, even if the sanitizer itself is one that is safe to drink (like Star San if it is mixed with water). Many sanitizers are not safe to drink. Play it safe and dump it.

Sanitizer tastes terrible. You’re going to have to dump this one.

I dumped it. I’m going to brew the Dead Ringer tomorrow. Hopefully I won’t do something stupid this time. It was my 1st brew so maybe things will be better this time!

Condolences on your loss.
Congratulations for getting back on the horse. Nowhere to go but up.
