Hey new brewer here with my 5th batch 2 days in primary. I tried the triple decoction method maybe just to say I did but at the very least to get better efficiency. Well after all the time and effort with the mash and boil I dropped my hydrometer and broke it before I took a reading…smh. I drew out a sample and dropped it in a sanitized mason jar and stuck it in the fridge in the hopes to test OG when I get a new hydrometer. My work schedule is nuts so it may be a couple weeks before I have opportunity to get another one so my question is how long will the wort last or rather will the OG reading be valid in 2 weeks. I want to say the sugars wouldn’t break down much at all but what do I know.
Curious if anyone would have first hand experience with something like this.
