You ever get in such a routine that if one thing changes you drop the ball on something else? This happens to me frequently.
Yesterday I decided not to rack from BK to fermenter, but rather just pump it in as soon as I hit pitching temp. Well that meant not having to drag my auto siphon out and sanitize it in the fermenter. Usually I also put my O2 wand in there at the same time.
Well, I got all done brewing. Yeast pitched. Cleaning done. Brewery put away. Gear put away. Hey! My O2 wand is sitting in a keg of iodophor in the hobby room, where I put it that morning after oxygenating my yeast starters. Crap! I forgot to oxygenate my beers before pitching! It had only been an hour, so I just went out and oxygenated them post pitching.
Funny how changing one thing can disrupt the stuff you just do automatically.
If these turn out to be the best beers ever, do you think I will oxygenate post pitch from now on? Uh, yes!
