cold break usually settles out fast, before you would ever transfer and with the beer being super clear otherwise,

it looks like your growing a vinegar mother. if it is, it will start floating or sitting in the middle of the carboy.


floating but still a baby.


not a baby.

First, I want to apologize as I've misled everyone (and myself) by being unorganized. It turns out that what was shown was unfermented wort. I know it seems completely ridiculous that one could make that mistake. However, I currently have 3 beers in progress. I mixed up one of the beers that I racked to a secondary the other day (the dubbel) with the one shown in my pictures (Oktoberfest-style ale). They surprisingly looked the same except for that break material at the bottom of one.

So sorry again. I blame beer.

However, this was the first batch I've made using Whirlfloc which now explains why you can see a bunch of hot break proteins that coagulated this way after cooling it quickly overnight (cold floor). The amount of material is surprising though, as I strain my wort before going into the fermenter.

I pitched the yeast two nights ago and have had crazy fermentation and krausen. If I had used an airlock instead of a blow-off tube, it might have become a Better Bottle bomb! So we'll see if the same happens with the next batch using Whirlfloc...

Oh, well in that case, it's not break material at all, and there is, in fact, an intestine in your beer.

You caught me. I give up! I'm a big proponent of (almost) all things offal and crossed the line with brewing. I thought it'd add a nice oaky afterbirth to the finish...

Now I know I've never tried it, but that seems like a big waste of such a wonderful thing. I think Porchetta is a more worthy use. <drools>

Porkfelwein even has it's own myspace page.

Of course you can see how old it is....since it's on myspace.
