missed strike temp probably will not matter . Just bandage up them hands and put some double sided tape on the bandage so you can grip your beer bottle .
I just opened one of these . Had 4 left . they are in bottle for probably 3 months I would guess . Maybe more . It was very good . Has a slight kind of citrus taste now .
EDIT: I have not had one stuck sparge ever since I started wraping my false bottom with a nylon paint strainer
