So here is my story; I woke up early today to make a starter for my Helles that I am brewing on Monday (I am active duty, gotta love holidays)
So I my normal routine is to boil some water, sanitize my flask, stir bar, scissors, foam stopper etc. Well everything is going to plan, I mean I must have done this a hundred times (cocky)
. Add some extract, boil, add some nutrient, poor into flask, cover and start cooling in an ice bath. So I get dressed, then I remember I forgot to put my thermometer in the flask to make sure I hit my temp. Here is where the story gets funny, I go to my garage and grab it and shove it into the flask. Guess what I didnt do? I forgot to sanitize it
. So I guess I am screwed, I can chance it or make the hour drive and get more yeast. Oh well live and learn I guess.
