Default I am PISSED at my dog...

Stanley has always had a fascination with towels, but he was blocked from being around my fermenting carboy. Well, tonight while we were gone, Stanley found a way to get near my carboy and decided my towel was HIS towel and he pulled it off of my carboy. Normally not a big deal, right? Well, the top half of my beer was exposed to florescent lights for God knows how long while we were gone. Could have been 5 minutes or 5 hours.

How will I know if the lights affected my beer? The carboy is in a swamp cooler and was covered by the towel so no light could get in, the only thing exposed was half of the airlock. And I was going to bottle it this week...grrrr.

Stanley is in the doghouse. Nah, he was just being Stanley. I should have blocked it even better than I did. I cant stay mad at my boy.

I really don't think it will be a problem. Proceed as normal.

Bingo and well put. Most transgressions by dogs are the result of lack of proper teaching by the people they own....

Should be cool man. All I've known about beer and light is that it skunks the hops. That's why we use brown bottles for beer but cider is ok in clear. I don't think it will be a problem.

Takes longer than 5 hours for anything harmful to happen to your beer. Now, go hug your boy and apologize for getting mad. And have a beer.

Oh, I got mad at him, but HE didnt know it. In fact, as I was putting another towel on top, he brought me his ball and we played catch. He LOVES HIS BALL! I DID tell him if he did it again, he would get no more spent grain treats. His ears perked up...he heard me.

My dog absolutely loves tennis balls. He doesn't even know he did something wrong, if I think he did something wrong, wags his tail, and I can never stay mad at him for longer than 2 seconds.

when you put the towel over the bucket, do you cover the airlock? it sounds like you do. he might have done you right by opening up the airlock holes

Nope...the only thing NOT covered is the top half of the airlock.
