So today I racked my American Wheat into my bottling bucket. Usually when I do this, I point the spigot towards the ceiling and turn the valve into the off position--except, this time I failed to turn the valve off. Not thinking, I spotted the leak and immediately thought the gasket inside the bucket was faulty. So, doing the unthinkable, I reached into the bucket and attempted to tighten it. Luckily, my hands were clean as they had been in sanitizer all day, but I am still concerned about the final product. I am hoping my yeast are strong enough to ward off whateve contaminates were on my hands.
