    Over Cooled my wort...

    I was cooling my wort in an ice bath last night, and I fell asleep. Note to self: Don't brew later in the evening. Should it still be okay? Pour in to my brew bucket and pitch the yeast?? Hoping I haven't ruined a whole batch.

    Broken 3g carboy...

    I brewed up 3 gallons of an ESB... and well, my only 3g carboy broke. So I evenly put the wort in to three 1g carboys and then topped them up, somewhat equal. Was just wondering, I am now at bottling... Should I just mix them all together and prime it and bottle? or should i do each separate??

    Infection in my bottles...?

    I just bottle carbed about 15 or 20 bottles, and they don't seem all that... Pleasant to the eye. Looks like stringy little guys hanging from where the top of the cider is in the bottle. Normal? Anything I can do? Here's a pic. Not very good... Sent from my SGH-I337M using Home Brew mobile app
