Thanks, that is a relief.

I have always been curious about that. Is it possible to tell how good a beer is going to be when you take hydrometer samples? I always taste my samples, because I enjoy experiencing the changes. But, I am thinking about stopping that habit. Every time I taste a hydrometer sample, even before bottling the last batch that turned out good, I question if it is infected, or if the hops are right, or if gremlins took over fermentation.

RDWHAHB!!
Don't sweat it.
Of course if you're worried, you could drop ice in your tub and get it as cold as you can for a couple days.
