Hey everyone, Wolfpack Brewing here. I was feeling a little intrepid and ran up to my local home brewing shop. I bought a 2 gallon bucket with spigot, airlock, and sealing lid along with a Mr. Beer Canadian Blonde can. I started this brew on Sunday night. I made the beer according to the directions, but I added 1 cup of dextrose to the wort in order to later add Lactobacillus to make this a sour blonde (yes, yes, bring on the jokes). I poured everything into the bucket, and perhaps added a bit too much water. When I came home today from work and checked on things, I noticed that the airlock had overflowed and liquid was pooled on top of the lid, but the lid was sealed. I carefully poured off the liquid and dried the top. I also quickly removed and cleared the airlock, blocking the whole in the lid with a clean sheet. I did sample the overflowed wort and tasted some alcohol, sugar and yeastiness. Other than the yeasty flavor, I didn't notice any off flavors. I have not added the Lactobacillus yet. Is this batch ruined because it overflowed, or am I still good to go and let it continue to ferment? Thanks guys!
