OK, so unfortunately I am using a Mr. Beer to start my new obsession. However, I was happy to discover that my keg showed about an inch worth of thick foam within a short time. I was thinking that at this rate, the top would blow.
Stupid me unscrewed the lid slightly to let a lot of air out. I never took the top off to let anything get exposed though. The following morning, I had no foam! All I can see on the top now is floating fruit that went into the receipe. I used dry yeast with this receipe as well. The bottom line is that I saw a heavy foam for 24 hours and then my fermenting batch died out.
Is my beer going to be a flop because I let some air out, or was this just coincidental? Should I leave the beer in the keg or toss it????
Anyone with slight knowledge, please respond, because I do not know what I am doing. I do not have a meter to take a reading at the moment.
