Default Question

Brewed my first Imperial Stout on Friday. Sunday morning I find the primary with the lid blown off and airlock clogged. Cleaned out the airlock and put the lid back on top. Is this beer likely ruined? Anything I can do to help save it?

Odds are you are just fine and you had GREAT fermentation.

Give this a read and you'll feel all warm and cozy inside..

Re sanitize the lid, put a blow off tube on it and wait Its all good.. Just put a blow off tube pn for the first 3 days of primary, i do every batch this way...Never a mess to clean up, or when i go to work i dont have to think about "what if"
