You’re right.
Plus, I would not think it would have affected so many of the brews. I could see the first or second one being that way but at least 10 half liter bottles were. Also these were from 4 different jugs because of the yeast experiment I was doing.

Looking back, the only thing I can think of is I got careless and in a hurry when I poured the brew into the bottle bucket. I guess since I had not had any problems before, I rushed the pour. Next time I will just siphon it over gently into the bucket. By then I will also have the tap installed.

If you ever have a beer you worked lovingly on turn to wet cardboard, you will never be apathetic on the bottle step again. Lesson learned here, for sure.

BTW: Thanks for the input guys. It made me look back and really think about what happened.
