I've read the "is my beer ruined" section so I have no intention of throwing this batch out. I'm just wondering if it's something normal that happens all the time or what. It's on the inside top of the carboy above the liquid. At first I thought it was just condensed foam from the run-off period but after all the foam died down the film got bigger as if it's growing on it's own. I figure since it's not actually touching the beer it might not affect the flavor. I can get pics if need be but I figured I'd try without them first. Thanks for any help.
Here it is, I started on 02.19.2010. I first assumed it was the run off foam but after that died down the film was half the size it is now then the next day was the size it is now. There was no pic in your post businesstime. Thanks for the quick replies.
Thanks. It's actually a brown ale straight outta one of Papazian's books. Elbro Nerkte Brown ale. I think I may have used a darker crystal malt than needed, but the recipe didn't specify. Either way I agree, it looks dark and delicious.
