Dropped the grommet into the fermentation vessel when trying to push the lock in. Just like the youtube video I watched this morning warned me.
Research says that if it had been sterilised then it should be ok. So I grabbed a spare one and put the lock on properly. Fingers crossed.
The thermometer is reading a little warm (28-30°C) so I’ve wrapped it in a wet towel and put the fan on in the garage. See how we go I suppose.
A while ago I picked up some home brew gear from Freecycle. I’ve always wanted to brew my own beer and why knock free gear!
Months pass and I keep making excuses about having no bottles. Really I just didn’t want to stuff it up. Christmas arrives and a gift voucher means I have no excuses - bottles and other extra gear purchased.
Last weekend was a heat wave so today I’ve sterilised my gear and I’m just waiting for it to dry. So I figured I would document at least my first brew!
