I’m doing my second 1 gallon batch, WH Honey Ale this time around, and yesterday evening I tried to bottle everything by myself because I was a little too eager. This was a challenge and I only got about two bottles down before I started to make a mess and realize I should have waited until I had a helper. Not really thinking, I poured the two bottled beers back into my gallon carboy (they weren’t primed yet), resealed the airlock and decided to let it sit for another couple of days.
Did I completely hose my beer? Was this too much activity and air exposed and then reintroduced? I’ll know in a couple of weeks after a successful bottling, but was curious if anyone else has ever had this issue before. Cheers!
