Bleach shouldn't be an issue I'd you rinsed and/or dried well. My guess would be priming sugar or keeping bottles in a cold area of the house to carbonate. Did you mix the priming sugar? Sometimes...

Yep... water and ice or boiling water will tell you which one is correct.

Youre pretty close already. I would just spend the extra time cold crashing and roll with what you have. If I'm within 25% of my count I just pitch. Especially with healthy cells after a starter...

I wouldn't be scared to leave the cake overnight in a cool area. Beyond that I would save it in a mason jar so there's little head space. If you want to pitch the proper amount, just get a...

That much munich lme will give you a malty beer and may leave a lot of residual sweetness. Dont be surprised if your beer turns out more like a barleywine than a ipa.

Next time try light lme and...

I think mine are 5/8 od in the standard bucket tapped lid. No blow ups so far but it will build some pressure on big beers and Belgians.
