Beer Safe to Drink?
I'm not really sure if this is the right place for this question. Please let me know.

I just opened up a can of Modus Hoperandi IPA and there seems to be a bunch of yeast clumps floating throughout the ENTIRE beer. I mean there are a ton.

Here is a picture. It really doesnt do it justice. If you see this thing in person there is WAY more yeast (?) floating in there.

so, is it safe to drink? Anybody know what it is?

Check it out:

Safe - Yes

Gross - Maybe

As long you are sure that its yeast you should be fine.

the pick kinda looks like hop pellets to me, but that is just from a homebrew I did that i didnt filter out the hops before bottling. I cant imagine it is not safe to drink because nothing that can kill you can live in beer.

That being said, you could get a nice stomach ache from it... Id drink it though.

Mostly hop pieces, never had a can that wasn't like that.

taste it, if it tastes ok you should be ok

I always have an extra package of toilet paper, for tasting experiments

I had the same thing happen with a sams wit. It was gross. I think its yeast not hops. That particular beer was in my fathers in law fridge for over a year. So I attributed it to that.

I think I'm gonna pass on this beer. Don't want to dump it but ohwell.

I had a DT that looked like that once. Sadly I could not bring myself to drink it, even though it tasted fine, it was just too gross to look at. Good for you for finishing that.
