I re-brewed my first batch ever this weekend (simple extract recipe) to tryout my new kegging equipment, but had two potential hazards during the brewing process:
After I achieved a vigorous boil, it got very windy, resulting in an inconsistent rolling boil.
During cooling when I turned the water on for my immersion cooler, one of the tubing ends burst, letting an unknown, but hopefully small, amount of tap water and whatever residual water wasn't blown out of the copper tubing from last time into my brew.
A few hours later, the yeast was working vigorously and the krauesen was already starting to form. I know, in very general terms, that if the yeast takes hold before any nasties do, that things, on the whole, will be ok. However...
I would love as much input as possible as to the possible effects these two snafu's could have on the finished product.
Thanks in advance.
