I made a Hefe last week using Wyeast 3068 and those guys are active! Got everything into my plastic bucket, lid on, and the next day the lid was pushed up and off with Hefe flowing down the side of the bucket. Time to get me a glass carboy I guess
Obviously it was exposed to air, but I'm pretty sure it's not ruined, since it was only for a handful of hours early on in the process and I'm going to rack to secondary this weekend. But it got me thinking, just how much air can you expose the wort/beer to at this stage and still get a nice finished product?
Anyone have an idea?
