finished 2 of the batches, drinking another now, and about to keg the last...

Flavor not really affected so far, the one I am drinking now was actually a kentucky common ale that was intentionally soured, so there is a very mild sour flavor but, it was done in the mash on purpose...

All fermented in different buckets and primaries, with different airlocks...May have cross contaminited when checking fg.

Plan on replacing the mash tun(not great to begin with), tubing, etc...


Will clean the bejeezus out of all else.
i had a few batches with similar "white islands", it was yeast floaties, not infection of any kind

Why in Ninkasa's name would an IPA be in secondary for that long? Looks like wild yeasties to me.

I brewed a kolsch 2 weekends ago and poured the last 1/2 gallon of wort from my keggle into a plastic bin just for kicks. I still don't know what kind of bacteria it is. It smells sour but not overpowering.

Default Double Dang!

After about 20 batches this is my first official infection. It is on my Switzer Mesa Honey Wheat ale batch. Can any one ID the kind of infection for me? I'm pissed about it, because I made a 3 gal batch of this recipe earlier this year and it came out great and we blasted through it in a couple of weeks, so I figured I'd do a 5 gal batch for when summer really got here and now it's infected. Dang!

I racked the beer from under the top layer and bottled it like normal. It's drinkable but has a strange taste to it. I am hoping that that will age out, but I'm not holding my breath. :-(

I just set up my first batch last week and am about ready to go to bottling in a couple days, I was worried about infections but this thread showed me what to look for!

Keep this post up so first timers like myself can see whats wrong.

I read a post yesterday about never dumping your beer and that time can fix it....with a case like one of these, does that still apply?
