YIKES! Freezer unplugged? Need Advice.

Postby herocomplex » Thu Sep 23, 2004 8:02 pm

So I opened up my beer cooler to check on some pilsners and was shocked to see the airlock of one clogged up (the carboy was a bit full). They had both been transferred to the second stage so I didn't expect so much activity. I then noticed that it quite warm in there...whoops, accidentally unplugged the sucker maybe a week ago. They'd already spent about 2 weeks in the primary at 50 deg. I'm sending them back down to 50 deg. and I'm wondering on how this might affect taste. 2 weeks at 50 then a week at 70 or so. Any ideas? Thanks guys, you've got some great advice here. I'm sooo glad this resource exists.

You know, it's really sad, but those pilsners are done. Please place them gingerly in bubble-wrap and send them to me in a refridgerated truck.

You can rest assured I will dispose of them properly.

Regretfully, but ever-honestly yours,
Charlie :)

Sounds like you just did an extended diacetyl rest -- should be fine. 8)
