Hi all, I'm new here and also new to homebrewing. I made my first batch of homebrew ever, a Bavarian Wheat beer from a kit which I have just bottled 2 weeks ago. I thought I would be a little more adventurous and after researching alcoholic ginger beer on the internet, I came up with my own recipe. However I think I may have messed the batch up completely. I had some Richards steriliser mixed up in a gallon jar, having added my ingredients to the wort I was adding cold water to the wort to bring down the temperature to pitch the yeast and I have accidentally added 1 litre of the sterilizer to the wort (12 litres in total in the fermentation vessel). I carried on with it anyway just to see if it would ferment. It had a SG of 1032 and fermented for a week FG was 1008. I have bottled it and had a small taste....tastes ok. My question is will this be safe to drink without poisoning myself or should I throw it down the sink and start again? I am assuming that if the yeast have survived to ferment it then it cant be too badly contaminated. I would appreciate some views from all you experienced brewers out there.
