Okay…newbie here, don’t know anything about how yeast works or brewing at all yet.
Please don’t laugh or critize my dumbness and screw up too much.
Got a brewing kit as a xmas gift. Did my first brew early February (the Irish Red Ale) which
i guess is the easy starter brew. It was ready end of March and came out great.
Girlfriend got me the La Petite Orange Extract Kit w/Specialty Grains - I tried brewing it over the weekend. The yeast was in the fridge for about a month when it arrived at my door.
I totally missed the part in the directions about taking it out and “activating” it 3 days before brew. I didn’t read ahead prior to brew day and made the dumb mistake of assuming it was like the first beer i brewed and you just put in the powder yeast at the end.
so what i did was dump the yeast packets that came with this, both liquid packets (the inner and outer packets) into my wort. Then assuming this wasn’t gonna do what it is supposed to do, I had some packets of active yeast around for baking (bread/pizza dough yeast) and i dumped that in.
Any shot this will come out like beer at all?? or it is screwed up so much I should just dump it and move on???
I’m pretty pissed at myself cause this brew sounded like it was gonna taste awesome. so pissed if i screwed it up and wasted it.
