Leaf Plug Pain
So tonight I transferred my Organic Wit to the secondary fermenter. With no bubbles coming out of the airlock for the last couple days, it seemed like a good time to move the brew to the secondary fermentor. I measured the gravity, 1.011, right about where the recipe said it should be. When I took out the airlock to allow the bucket drain into the carboy, I was immediately hit with the aroma of coriander and orange… Things were looking good.
As I started the drain, it almost immediately slowed to a trickle. I had forgotten that I used organic leaf plugs. The plugs were clogging up the drain. What a pain!!! I sanitized some large paperclips and used that unclog the spigot… after almost an hour (for 5 gal) I finally got the wit to the carboy.
