Lactobacillus. This is an ESB that was fermenting 4 weeks in the primary. I Skimmed off the white stuff, crash chilled, and dry hopped in the keg w/ .5oz Styrian Goldings and .5oz Tetnanger. Awesomely tasty brew.

Tried dry hopping for the first time 6 days ago. I thought I hade cleaned and sanitized everything very well but today I now find these signs of infection. Should I bother kegging or even bottling either of these batches of amber ale?

Can anything be done to salvage some of these batches? thanks for any input anyone may have.

SO I grabbed a carboy with tshirt out of the closet and carry to the table to prepare to bottle, and what do I find? My very first infection! Yippee!

Here is the photo - wish I had looked, I kinda broke it up....gonna let it settle/ float before I rack into bottle bucket. No off smell that I can detect.

Super newb question on my first batch of beer. Better safe than sorry. Racked to secondary and these appeared 18 hours later, are these just bubbles? Airlock has a release every 90 seconds or so. American yeast US-05 and 7 days in primary if that helps?

Where do I rack it, keg, until drink? I was thinking of racking to keg and then back after I clean out the carboy again. Would that oxidize the beer too much? I auto-siphon carefully!

Here's a few more pics, thoughts welcome:

How about this one?

I wonder if someone might help me out by giving me their opinion on this one.

I brewed a barleywine in January, and racked to secondary in late Feb. (I know, probably a mistake -- next time I'll just leave it in primary...)

Took a gravity reading a couple weeks ago and it had it the proper FG. Didn't notice any problems at that point. But today I checked and there are now some very mysterious floating things in the secondary (Better Bottle).

They're white or off-white in color. Some are at/near the surface, but most are hanging out in the middle or bottom of the secondary. So I'm wondering if it's an infection. Can someone have a look at these pics and give me an opinion one way or another? Thanks in advance.
