Default Infection Photo Gallery

What do you think about HBT having a specific section or gallery for posting of infection photos? Maybe it could evolve into its own subforum, but I'm thinking having photos of infections for reference purposes for those that *think* they might have one have something to compare what they are seeing to.

I don't know...just typing out my brain farts right now...

There is already one thread that is doing that. Check it out if you have questions about whether your beer may be infected.

Default Please help!

Is my porter infected? It was fine in 2ndry for a week and then I added about 12 oz of maple syrup and 5 days later, bam, this: http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/...g/IMG_0391.jpg

Is this infection and if so should I rack it out to bottles now (I don't have a keg yet)? I was planning on adding bourbon soaked oak chips for 3 weeks starting soon, but should I change my plan because of this growth? Maybe rack to a different carboy and then add the oak?

Looks like brett to me, but I'm no expert.

My question is, if it is Brett, how will it affect the taste of my IPA. I still need to dry hop. Should i transfer from under the Bret to another carboy before dry hopping?

I would do that ^^^ soon or consider skipping the dh and bottling/ drinking it asap.

Unless the temp is high, say well over 70, the brett will take a long time to work. It usually needs 6-9 months, sometimes more, to funkify a beer. Look at it this way - you're making a more authentic, old fashioned IPA. The originals almost certainly had brett yeasts, too. Given time, it will definitely change the character, but you may find you like it.
