As much as I don't want to repost my mistake, here it is. No infection - just coagulated proteins from using Whirlfloc.

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...

In other words, BREAK MATERIAL.

Cripes, the first thing I'd do is have a priest come to your house...

OP is gonna have to post the explanation at the top of each page or this thread will just keep growing like an intestine-like infection.

I just started watching that show fringe and I have seen where this leads. Do not drink that beer ... Next thing you know you will have a parasite attached to your heart....
