I am currently on my second brew and I believe that I have run into some issues with my Wyeast Smack Pack. Three hours before I began brewing, I smacked the pack in hopes to bust the internal pouch. Three hours later, it appears that the pouch was larger than before but not fully expanded. The instructions stated that if it were below 70 it would not fully expand.
Upon cutting the packet open and mixing it into my 5 gallons of mix, I realized the internal packet was not open. However, the existing contents of the packet were already drained into the carboy…So I cut the packet open and poured it into the mix.
Is this batch of beer toast? or is there any way that I can save it?
