Making new batch thus next week. will bottle with 1/2 tsp as a little less carbonation is ok with us. Really taking sanitation time to make sure bottles and LBK are well done. That very well could have been a game changer as I sort have rushed that process. Bottles have been well cleaned as has the LBK. Will take a solid process with the sanitizer on bottling day as well as getting the wort into the LBK.
Will watch fermentation time and temp and final gravity. Again, I could have rushed the process. Only time this has happened with any brew.
As with my golf, not gain in rushing the process!!
