A fly in my airlock?!

Today I found a (dead) bug/fly in the water in my airlock! This beer has been in primary for 8 days now, and I've been checking the airlock at minimum once per day, so I know he's not been in there...

Okay, so I've got a minor problem here.

I walked out of the brew shop with 5lbs of Light DME, not 6lbs of Dark DME.

Given that the steeping grains are accurate, how would the change to 5lbs...

Yeah, that's probably it. I took the sample from my filtering/bottling bucket before I transferred it to my Carboy (where I shook the hell out of it to oxygenate and mix). Fermentation seems slower...

Disaster or just more ABV?

So I went to make my second batch of this today. Everything was fine until I tested my OG: 1.082. I realized I used 4lbs of Pale LME by accident instead of 3.3. It shouldn't affect my hop efficiency...

Following up here, putting some oxyclean and water in the pot for a day will make it sparkle again.

There is nothing oxyclean cannot do. It should run for president.

As a side question (AKA threadjack), this happened to me yesterday as well on a different beer. How do you get those scorch marks off the inside bottom of the kettle?

I asked earlier if I could skip secondary, and you said it was more or less a judgement call. I judged to go with your side. It needed a clean-up, and it was the perfect opportunity to...

+1 to this and I've also found that they taste quite a bit better after sitting in the fridge for longer than it takes just to get them cold. I'm talking 3+ days. It could just be in my head.
