Ok, first time brewer here. I wish I would have found the forum sooner. I just have a couple of questions.
1. When I was opening my can of extract my can opener tore the label near the rim. You can see where this is going right? As I was pouring my extract into my hot water, some pieces of the label fell into the mix. Being the germaphobe that I am, I fished out the pieces of the label and reheated the wort just until it was boiling. I was very careful not to let it scorch. I then finished the brewing process per the instructions. Did I ruin my wort by bringing it up to a boil to sanitize it?
2. I had set up a cooler in my basement and I was rotating jars of hot water every 12 hours or so for the first couple of days to keep the temperature between 68-76 degrees. After reading in the forum that cooler was better, I pulled my LBK from the cooler and put it on a shelf where the temp runs about 64-66 degrees. Was this a good move?
Thanks for the help!
