the yeast (us04) took off after about 6 hrs and have been cheerily burping out co2 like a motor boat since then so I guess it should be okay. so it will be a little dry. so it will be a little lower on abv. i'll just consider it an English session ale. on the plus side, the glass fermenter is doing better than plastic at keeping the temps at 58f. one and a half ice bottles every 12 hrs is working nicely for me.
I have a case of glass bottles in the dishwasher right now on the rinse cycle, no detergent. I'll still clean the. But at least this way I can store them without having bugs or mold.
i think my get rich invention will be miniature funnels and beer safe detergent. Fit funnel on bottle upside down, add detergent, get clean bottles. Perfect idea.
