So I am brewing a pliny the elder today and at the flameout just before I begin to use the chiller, my niece comes in and drops a pendant into the wort. It was not a new pendant, and I am not sure how old it was, My sister then comes in and proceeds to fish it out with a slotted spatula before I begin to protest it was already in the wort.......WTF??????? So the question here is .......is the patch ruined from infection??? Its heavy beer, but then again the slapac did not go off like I had expected. I have never used on before and I just set it on the counter with out bursting the inside. On the inside there is the packet of nutrient that should have been broken. So, again, I ask the question, will the wort turn into beer or is it a batch that will go down the drain?
I understand that I will wait a few days and see if it starts fermentation, If the fermentation starts, then I will wait till the bubblier stops and then take a reading, (at which point I hope everything will be alright).
