Should I Panic?
« on: March 02, 2013, 01:00:31 PM »
I forgot to de-pressurize my blow off as I was bringing my lager down to 33F.  When I pulled it out of the nasty sulphur laced water, a little got sucked in to the beer.  It's not gang green but it is cloudy and probably a bit nasty.  Panic or RDWHAHB?

Panic only helps if you can do something about it, so RDWHAHB. It will probably be OK.

No more taking the hose out of the water before taking out the thermowell!  It should be OK but I'm sure I'll be trying to taste it when it is kegged..... :-\

Time for a homebrew anyway.  I'll follow your advice Jimmy.
