clogged spigot

Recommended Posts

ok, so i bottled my belgian xmas ale today. one problem. during the  three weeks of fermentation the spice sack opened up and the dried pieces came out expanded and floated around. no big deal until i bottled it when some of the pieces clogged the spigot so i had to open the LBK and lean the keg back(very slowly)  so i could undo the spigot to get the pieces out then reattach and continue pouring. my question is did i contaminate my brew by opening the lid and cleaning out the spigot sure i may of gotten some trub in the bottles. info appreciated.

This would be a good time when it's handy to have a spare LBK.  (They're inexpensive.)  I had a stuck spigot once, from the hop sack from dry-hopping.  I quickly sanitized a spare, racked the remaining wort, and finished bottling from the spare.
