Hey, thanks for the interest! Let me give you an update!
I actually went ahead and bottled like the day before I saw the concern on this post that it may be an infection. I figured Since it was already bottled, WTF, we’ll see what happens. So I was thinking maybe there’d be some sort of pressure buildup that would cause bottles to explode or something but that never happened.
Today I put a couple bottles in the fridge to chill and sample. After several hours, I cautiously opened one, again expecting some sort of violent explosion or at least a putrid smell, but nothing. I poured into a frozen mug and besides the hyper-head, which I’ve had with several different batches, all seemed well. Smelled good, so I tried a taste. It was delicious! Tasted more like Shock Top than Blue Moon to me… but regardless, no spoiled/rotten taste or obvious flaw of any kind.
I’ve been brewing for several years, but not a ton, so I’ve seen many forum posts regarding topics that I’ve had questions about and usually the answer is always something like, “it’s really hard to screw it up…it’s probably still good!”
Apparently this again proves true.
