Went to transfer my brew to secondary, and, ho mammy, the stench that came outta the ferma-freezerator!
Had a rather robust fermentation, even over-flowing the airlock, so there was a small puddle of wort on the floor of the ferma-freezerator. And it stank! Cleaned up and started transferring to the secondary. Took a sample for FG purposes and, like I always do, tasted it.
Sour. Damn. Caught a bug somewhere.
Ah, well. Happens to the best of us. Ran out to the LHBS and got ingredients to do another batch.
Pisser is that it puts me 2 weeks behind and I'm down to a twelver of my fave. Thank Jebus I just picked up a six of Sierra Nevada Celebration and my holiday ale should be ready to drink tomorrow.
