I was all ready to bottle up my IPA last night (and yes, since this is StackExchange, I named the brew "IPAddress"). Everything got sanitized, bottles were de-labeled, the whole nine yards. I boil the priming sugar, pour it in, give it a stir, and it's looking lovely. I grab the first bottle, a cap, and....and where's the capper?
I spent the majority of last night turning my apartment over, looking for the dang thing. No dice - my best guess is I left it behind at my former apartment in a drawer. I re-airlocked the brew, having exhausted my options, and am going to purchase a new capper.
At this point, what are the effects on the finished beer going to be? Introducing more sugar is going to introduce more alcohol, and I have to wait until the yeast has chewed through everything I just introduced to it before attempting to prime it again. Am I freaking out unnecessarily?
Thanks for your help, and happy brewing!
