Do I have an Infection?
 
2 Attachment(s)

None of my beers have looked like this before, I am guessing that it is an infection. If so I am gonna be pretty dissapointed because I was really excited about this beer. Let me know what you think. Thanks

I used this recipe

Black Pearl Porter

The only changes I made was added some toasted unsweetened coconut (in a grain bag) and a little bit of chocolate to the boil at about 20 minutes.

I sanitized with StarSan. I made a starter which did not seem infected and took off with a pretty solid looking fermentation within 12 hours.


ALL GRAIN - 5 Gallons
8.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
2.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 30L (30.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM)

0.50 oz Fuggles [4.52%] (60 min)
0.50 oz Fuggles [4.20%] (2 min)

0.25 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 min)

1.00 cup Malto-Dextrine (Boil 20.0 min)
4.00 oz Lactose (Boil 15.0 min)

1 Pkgs London Ale (Wyeast Labs #1028)


Mash Schedule: Single Infusion, Full Body, Batch Sparge
Total Grain Weight: 13.00 lb
Mash In Add 4.06 gal of water at 170.5 F 158.0 F 45 min
Mash Out Add 2.50 gal of water at 206.7 F 175.0 F 15 min
