Default Crap!!!

So according to this thread

I made my braggot. Well life happened and I have not yet racked it to secondary for whatever reason. Before I open the lid for the first time, do you guys think I screwed it completely?

I want to know what you guys think has happened.

3 months? I was expecting 6-12 months. If you have had an airlock that has not dried out, then no, I do not think you screwed it up at all.

I would recommend getting it into secondary as soon as possible to reduce the chance of off flavors.

BTW, you should also read Hitest's Autolysis FAQ.
