I finished a 10gal Irish red ale brew day two days ago. I transferred the brew to two 5 gal buckets for primary ferm, sealed with airlocks. I put one starter into bucket (A) and went to go get my second starter for bucket (B). In the process of returning the starter was dropped.
No big deal... I can pick up a second yeast vial the next day. I spaced and didn't get any yesterday.
I have kept wort on hand in a sealed bucket in the past (4 days was the most) due to waiting on a yeast cake to be available.
This morning I awoke to find both bucket (A) and (B) with very active airlocks. I know which one is which, thanks to lables (I've mixed up brews before
). Should I keep the (B) bucket? Should i still go get an irish ale yeast? The buckets were both very clean and both had soaked in fresh starsan.
