Hydrometer is at. 016. There is a bunch of brown gunk around the top- looks like mud or... yeah. It smells like beer and I can smell alcohol. Brought up a sample to taste and it is very murky. It looks like murky iced tea. It looked like there was oil on top as well, as it appeared there was a slight sheen in the bucket. Three out of three said no butter taste but it felt a bit thick or coated our tongue. So I am guessing I have a bit of diacetyl.

My sample was right off the top so whatever floats is what was in the glass.

Posting on my phone so excuse my run on sentences!
