...dear liza dear liza. Transferred my Scottish Export 80 to a keg today and I was planning on putting a new bear on top of the yeast cake. During that transfer a fly fell into the beer and ended up on the yeast cake. I carded him and he was over 21 so I wasn't worried about getting in trouble. However, he was sitting on the yeast cake when I finished the transfer. I covered the carboy and then boiled about a quart of water, I let it cool and poured it in the carboy, sloshed it around and just tipped it over flushing him and some of the trub out the top. Saved most of it. What are my chances of successfully putting a new beer on top of what is left in the carboy? This never happened before, I swear.
