I started mashing my rolling rock clone. as the mash was going on, I decided to transfer my braggot to the keg. as I was pulling the carboy out of the fridge, it bumped the flask with my yeast starter, and broke the flask. I picked it up and held the flask diagonally to keep whatever was left in it, then poured some bottled water into the hole, and swirled it around, then poured the yeast into the bottle of water. now I can pitch this and hope I saved enough, I can pitch a pack of Munton's ale yeast, or use a pack of s-23 lager yeast. What would you do?
My limited experience says go with the lager yeast, just because its lager yeast. I don/t know anything about s23 though
I ended up using the starter. I don't know how much water was in the jug, it was about 1/3 full. I doubt it changed the og much, and it seems to have taken off. I'll see how the beer turns out.
I would have pitched the flask too.
