i dont know about a bacterial infection, but it looks like mold to me. I say ferment it out and try it! the yeast will make it safe to drink, and who knows, maybe the floaties in there gave it some sort of miracle flavor

Have some bubbles in the airlock this morning, and it smelled a little better then earlier. Maybe she'll clean up and come around with the s-04. Thanks for all the feedback fellas! I definitely would have been lost without it!

Glad to hear there's some action! I'm sure when done you'll have beer!

Popped the lid open last night and had visible signs of krausening (the normal kind lol...not globs of bread) and fermentation. Smells a lot better too. Bout to take a gravity reading to see how well the s-04 worked.

Kinda tastes a little funky, but it's got some sweetness to it. The S-04 got it down to 1.013 though. I'm probably gonna let it sit for 3-4 more weeks and see if that helps. Who knows?

Already did! Put it all in my bottling bucket. Some of the floaties made the trip as well, but not many to cause any more damage.

Ended up dumping this batch. It smelled and tasted no better then before. Kinda tangy and vinegary, and just unpleasant. Needed room to dry hop my pale ale anyway, so I'm not too upset...still sucked dumping out beer though.
