This is the first time I’d used a Wyeast smack pack for a brew I’m planning tonight.
Half asleep this morning I came to activate the pack. I stupidly assumed there would be a packet within the packet and tore the corner slightly. When the yeast smell hit me, I realised my mistake. Rookie error.
Anyhow, I quickly taped it back up before activating the pack.
My instinct is just to toss it out now because of a) the possible bacteria on the tape, b) exposure to the air.
