Default My first infection, 5 months in the making.

Finally got around to the Hefeweizen that I brewed in June. So I racked underneath it, and gave a taste. No joke tastes like a Hefeweizen with just a tiny hint of bubblegum.

That looks like the skin on a can of old paint. I'm not sure I could bring myself to rack under that.

People who post pictures of yeast rafts and ask if it is an infection should be directed to this picture. Holy cow.

I haven't read anything about brewing a hefeweizen, so I don't know and have to ask. Is this intentional?
