When I first got into brewing I was very verbal about the fact. I met one guy who said his friend was hospitalized becuase he tried open fermentation for his first brew.

Which would tell me... if anything in the air just lands on your wort/beer and takes hold.. it could be good (like the belgians), or it could be bad... like.... Very BAD.

I honestly would let someone out front of the local "Jesus Saves" house to test it first.

Check on them in a week, and if he/she lived, then its good.

okay so I tasted it and it tasted amazing.

nothing off really. so i decided to rack it and say what the hay.

So it is in a keg. I will find out if I get the shlitz. then again, you get the shlitz from schlitz anyhow so is it bad if i actually get the shlitz? heh I left quite a bit and didn't come near to taking the top probably three maybe four inches of the beer. Since mold is aerobic with all hope that will contain all that was there.

This mold couldn't have been there for far too long. I think I would cry if I actually had to pour out the entire batch.

nope, still alive and kickin'

still reluctant to have a full pint of it though haha

I really think the problem will end up all in my head, the beer will most likely end up (for the most part) safe. This will probably be a beer i won't offer to friends and family though. I will allow myself to be punished for my own actions, but they shouldn't need to deal with it heh.

I briefly read all of the previous posts, and I didn't see this so I'll post it now.

Did anyone think that the white floaties might be yeast and not mold?

The OP sounded like the "white stuff" was in the keg and then he racked the beer onto it. I doubt it is yeast hanging out in an empty keg. Most likely inadequately cleaned keg with mold.

Sounds like it didn't harm the beer though. I'd drink it up before and spores that did stay in the beer start multiplying too much.

No the floaties are in the carboy. I still say it's yeast.

Again no the mold was on the top of the beer in the secondary.

This was not yeast. Two nicly formed slightly hair like quarter dollar size mold discs. If that was what I wanted to culture, I would have been proud. hah

It could have been from air or an inadequately sanitized carboy.
