Stupid is as Stupid does…. again
Here I go again! This time I left the blowoff tube in the jug of sanitizer when I turned down the temperature in my fermentation fridge. I wouldn’t have really expected what happened to have happened, but it did and I now I feel like a moron. Some how with the change in temperature, the carboy actually siphoned all the starsan back into the carboy.
As you can see from this picture, there was about an inch of old Star-san on top of the beer. Since Star-san is not supposed to affect the flavor of the beer, I decided to siphon the beer from under the Star-san. I’m hopeful that the Belgian Pale Ale is not destroyed, I tried some and it seemed ok. Thankfully it wasn’t a dump case… yet!
