What a weekend of Crap I’ve had :x
Friday night - made the slobber extract, decided in my stupidity to use a wine wand to stir the wort up before pitching. Only realized after a minute that I was letting all kinds of air in there.
Felt like punching myself
Fast forward to Saturday - my SS Minnow Mild was ready for the 2 week bottle tasting. It is horrible - like flavored water with some tangyness or something. Is it supposed to be like this? Was wondering if anyone knows of a beer sold everywhere (or NY at least) that is similar to it so I can try it to see if its just my taste buds or I messed up somewhere
Now today, I happen to be in my basement and I see that my slobber exploded. Would it have killed me to use tghe blowoff assembly instead of the S airlock. I was too lazy to clean it on Friday so just thought that I would get to it before it started serious bubbling. I immediately put a fresh airlock on there but hours later and I got nothing going on. The blowoff must’ve happened last night cos the krausen is all dried up on the outside of the carboy. It has also fallen right back inside. So I guess that ones toast as well? Any yeahs or nays on that?
I’ve totally just used you all for a therapy session but I needed to tell someone and mys wifes view was ‘it wasn’t gonna be ready for 2 months anyway’
I’ve never been as happy to be done of a weekend in my life
