Yesterday I brewed a batch of Brewer's Best Irish Stout and pitched the yeast around 530 PM. I noticed today at 1230 that I forgot to put any sanitized water into my airlock. I then filled it up with sanitized solution.
Do you think my brew will be okay or are all of my efforts wasted?!
You'll probably be fine if you followed good sanitization beforehand. You gave it some protection by putting the empty lock on. I wouldn't worry about it; especially if you have signs of fermentation. Any signs?
