Boiling water and 99% anti-bacterial hand soap.

What's the BB code to embed a video? Pictures are worthless because there's condensation on the top of my carboy. I can't photograph through it. I'm pretty sure this is some sort of infection because it's growing. Is it possible to get rid of it by sucking off the top? It might be a pellicle as I had one on my last beer, but I was stupid with that one and opened it up to check the gravity all of the time (it was my first). I don't see my sanitation being a problem though, I'm very thorough.

If you haven't tasted it you are not allowed to say it's an infection.

You should use an actual sanitizer instead of anti bacterial soap.

+1, it's very hard to rinse hand soap properly and it's not a sanitizer. Star San is an excellent choice, and it's cheap.

Most "anti-bacterial" soaps really don't have much killing power at all. Instead the soaps make it difficult for the bacteria to adhere to surfaces.

I did a makeshift experiment in micro lab a lifetime ago where I compared the effect of antibacterial soap, regular soap, and distilled water in order to see how each one affected an infected chip with and without agitation.


Distilled water with agitation inhibited growth better than antibacterial soap without agitation. True story.


Get a sanitizer. Most antibacterial soaps are just hype.

That's wild. Lesson leared/learning.

Well, today the sucker looks like it's going to be a pellicle. Is there any treatment for this or am I bottling for ****s and hoping for the worst? How do I bottle it anyway, it's in a glass carboy.

Sad day.
