Well, it needs another week in the primary anyway so I'll just sit back and watch it and give it another taste come bottling time. I'd be more concerned if it smelled or tasted bad but it didnt so that's why I was wondering if anybody had seen it before and what may have caused it such as hops, Star San, WLP810, etc. No worries!

The member who's picture this is said his smelled and tasted bad which mine doesnt. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll just sit back and watch it. Thanks.

aw jeez, i guess i'm the only person on this thread that finds humor in my sarcasm.

yeast is a fungus. therefore, all beers experience fungal infections.

in other words, your beer looks completely fine.

...i guess i'll have to look into a different form of humor.

I actually got your humor, kinda surprised you didn't tell him to ship it to you immediately! LOL!

It's just that this is the beginner's forum and they tend to panic at the little things so I was just trying to avoid sending someone into panic mode

That looks like a saccharomyces fungal infection.

Sounds serious. I'd better drink it before it gets worse.
