So I just cracked the lid on my primary to do a dry hop and I decided to taste a small sample to see how close it is. I’m in the process of moving so a lot of my kitchen stuff is boxed up, anyway to make a long story short, I decided to use a bit of tubing from my brewing gear to extract just a bit. I washed the end of the tubing in starsan and put it in the beer and sucked to get some into the tube then I closed the top end to keep that little sample in the bottom (think sticking a straw in a drink and putting your finger over the end to keep the liquid in). Unfortunately the pressure dropped and the sample splashed back into my carboy. What do you think the risk of infection is at this stage? I was able to taste it and it tasted pretty close and it’s a high ABV beer so I’m hoping if nothing else the alc content will be enough to kill anything off but I’m a little worried.
Should I be??
