As the title asks, has anyone ever used bourbon in the airlock? I Didn't have any vodka, but I did have a bottle of bourbon. So I used a bit of it. Will it cause my brew any harm if it seeps in?
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
the amount in the airlock shouldnt do any harm
I can't imagine a couple tablespoons of bourbon can overwhelm 5 gallons of anything
I'm trying to catalog every brew online so I don't have to keep notes all over the house. Check it out on my blog site below:http://brewzak.wordpress.com/
I've added more bourbon than that directly to the brew.Denny Conn's Bourbon Vanilla Porter
I didn't have any vodka on hand so i filled mine with moonshine... 1 day in the bucket and it seems to have worked fine...
I have soaked hops for dry hopping in bourbon and dumped it all straight into secondary. Worked out well thankfully.
Nothing to worry about. Relax, have a homebrew.
