So there I was, bottling my IIPA when half way through one of the bottles, I noticed some junk stuck to the side of the bottle. It looked like a chunk of yeast that I missed when cleaning the bottles. I cleaned and sanitized the bottles immediately before bottling. I continued to fill and cap the bottle, but marked the cap as potentially infected. Anyone think it's going to end up infected?

Maybe yes, maybe no, but since you marked it, make it the first one you drink.

Good call. Wasn't planning on doing that, but it's a good idea.

That's what I'm thinking, but it was already filled. It won't hurt to let it go, it'll just hurt when you go for it in about three weeks and have to dump it...

I hope it does make it though- I hate wasting perfectly good home brew..
