Especially when its your first batch and it was NOT quite what one would call "good".

Always surprises me no matter how bad the beer, at beer 4 or so.. it tastes drinkable.

I agree BTW looks like junk from your hops.

Thoughts on this? Its the more beer red kolsch. Fermented at 61, numbers are dead on. Smells great. I had the Brown spots before cold crashing which I assume are yeast rafts. 3 week total ferment. Took out yesterday, going to bottle tonight, then the white stuff joined the party. Doesn't look slimy or anything, but also doesn't look normal, thoughts? What should I do?

Rack it and drink it.. Looks like CO2 and rafts to me.

If it tastes good then its not an infection

Looks like cocoa powder that just won't get wet...

Not cocoa powder as none is added in.a kolsch. I bottled and it looks fine. Tasted pre priming sugar and it tasted good. Fingers crossed

noticed this stringy crap in my carboy right before I cleaned it, after I had racked and bottled the beer. didn't notice any off flavors really. I've seen people mention stringy web like stuff being bad but no real description.

Initially I thought hair...then I just thought, cripes that's discusting....Pumkin innards? Alien life - I'd be careful not to put your face over the carboy opening...
