I have a picture here that is the first occurance in my brews. It is english brown ale that was in primary for 2 1/2 weeks and transferred to the carboy to aid bottling.

After 2 days, the bubble patches started and have expanded - may soon cover the whole surface. They are not raised up, but are very dense in the middle of the patches. I found similar pictures of this on the web after much searching. Unusual to me, has me wondering.

The second photo shows the primary bucket on the day of transfer. The krausen was about 1/2 of sponge-like cake.

Why thank you! I even took it with my cell phone, I almost went and got my DSLR to get a real hi res image of it, but wasn't ambitious enough. That said, I DID take a video! Lol, damn nerds...

So any leads on what the hell it is?

After watching the video, it looks like some kind of mushroom. Each one appears to be a single plant of some kind.

Its definitely a mushroom or some other fungus. I would scoop them out and see if they return.. Maybe remove them and then back fill the carboy with CO2 ?

I'm thinking this is white mold.. and your house or room maybe infected:

http://www.ehow.com/how_4486090_spot-white-mold.html

Here is a pic of some basement steps covered in white mold



If you have a lot of it in the air.. no matter of sanitation will protect you 100%.. since its in the air.

From what I found on some sites.. most say the same thing.. either scoop out the white mold and rack to bottles now.. or a keg and remove as much of the oxygen as you can from it and it will be fine. Unlike Black mold, white mold is annoying but mostly harmless, unless you breath a lot of it in and have a weakened immune system.

Test and if it taste good your fine.

I'm thinking your still fermenting is whats going on here. The Krausen should have fallen all the way through to the trub.

I think i got my first infection on my second batch. Here is a picture of it. What do you think? Lactobacillus or just mold?

My only infection ever was Lacto and had huge bubbles.. that doesn't look like lacto to me but i could be wrong.


These look different from yours to me:
