Default Picture of my infection

So I think it finally happened and I had my first infection. I ran into some problems with Chi company kegs and had beers sitting a little longer then I wanted. I opened one today and here is what I see. This is a French Petite Saison recipe using Wyeast 3711.

It smells a little sour but you still can smell sweetness from the beer. I think I will scoop up the white particles and try it. I can keg it and if its still crappy after carbonated I can always dump it. What do you think?

I've had yeasts that have looked exactly like that and the beer was fine. That's just krausen curdles.

+1 to saisons smelling sour.

I just scooped up the white stuff, tried a little bit and it doesnt have have any distinct sourness, tastes more like a Saison.

Leave it alone, like I said, that's just yeast.....

When I initially opened my bucket I had a sour sniff and closer it smells more like a Saison. The abundance of white particles was what arose my suspicions. I think I've had little white specks but never this much.

I'm no expert, but it looks like lacto that's been broken up to me. Was there a white, chalky ring around the perimeter of the bucket with the krausen ring?

Yes there was a creamy white krausen stripe mixed with the usual poop / vomit color stain.
