fermenation lock instead of blow-by tube....a mess
I had a fermentation lock on my 6.5 gallon carboy for the first day and a half of fermentation. I planned on putting a blow-by tube to avoid a mess. Well, it turns out I was too late by about 8-10 hours. I quickly pulled the airlock off cleaned the top quickly and re-installed a blow-by tube. Have any of you had this happen where it effected your finished beer? I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping I didn't just ruin my batch by making a mistake on something as simple as a hose vs. an airlock.
