explain further please. havent read about this yet
by not chilling it i mean i never put in my wort chiller and passed cold water through it. i always transfer from my boil kettle into a bucket to ferment and pass it through a strainer witch takes a few minutes.
i didnt pitch yeast literally onto boiling wort, but im certain it was not chilled enough
i had everything cleaned up and put away and then a buddy and i had some whixkey drinks together. after eating i just went straight to sleep.
got up early the next deal and lookd at the fermenting bucket hangin out in my living room and realized what i'd forgotten to do.
