Well it had to happen eventually I guess but dang on my favorite beer??? I brewed my favorite extract Two Hearted Ale clone tonight and everything went dandy. All 4 oz of the centennial hops and and cooled after boil. Halfway racked into the carboy when I got that terrible oh &*%^ feeling. Yep.....Didint sanitize the glass carboy. You live and learn right. Gonna let it ride and see what happens. May the beer gods smile upon me on an otherwise beautiful spring day in Kansas City.

Dont worry, 100+ years ago there was no such thing as sanitizing and we could only dream to brew the beer they brewed. With a healthy yeast population everything should be ok.

I agree, chances are good that you will not notice anything off. Especially if the carboy was cleaned and you pitched a good amount of yeast.

Hey neighbor, small world. It looks like we've got an entire week of great weather ahead of us. It's about time after the 3 straight weeks of rain. (I might actually get my pool cleared up this week!) Anyhow, good luck on the brew!

For future reference, I have seen where others that have done the same thing you did, and realized it before pitching, simply reheated the wort and went from there. The aroma hops would lose some of their touch, but that may be better than risking infection.

Just wanted to say good choice on the Two Hearted clone. I made one about a month and a half ago. It is in the kegged and carb'ed up nicely. Very close to the real thing. I like it...

Or learn to drink sour beer, just like your forebearers.

I'm inclined to agree that the odds are in your favor.
