I’m very new to homebrewing, just finished brewing my first batch of beer ever, the Block Party amber ale that comes with the Northern Brewer starter kit.
While sanitizing my equipment to begin fermenting, the instructions recommend you sanitize the yeast bag and scissors as well. I put all the stuff I wanted to sanitize in the sanitizing liquid (oxygen wash) inside of my fermenting bucket and left it there for about 10 minutes (too long obviously).
Only later did I notice that some of the green colorant that gives the “dry yeast bag” its color had washed off in my sanitizing liquid. After dumping out the sanitizing liquid from my fermenting bucket, I did rinse the fermentation bucket quickly with about 2 liters of water, but probably not very thoroughly.
I am now worried that some of the sanitizing liquid tainted with the colorant was left on the sides of the bucket, and will make it into my beer.
How worried should I be about this? I don’t understand why they tell you to sanitize the yeast package if the color is going to wash off and make it into your beer! (and yes, they do tell you to leave stuff in the sanitizing process for at least 2 minutes). I my beer going to be toxic now?
Thanks for any advice!
