Don't worry about the coffee, if you soaked them in vodka or bourbon for awhile then you're golden. I didn't sanitize my coffee out of curiosity.

Just finished brewing a batch, and racked the other one I had in primary.

Added the coffee, and wood and cocoa nibs.. They were all soaked in bourbon, the coffee and cocoa soaked up all the bourbon just about, but I figure it's good to go.. We'll see!

Yeah...that's infected. In my opinion.

Hate to say it but i'd dump it and cut my losses. Mourn its death by drinking a few high abv beers, then buy some new ingredients for something else.

I brewed a batch with raisins 2 weeks ago. Today the brew has a bunch of abnormally large bubbles, and if they break they leave a kind of film. Smell isnt too inspiring either.

Same thing happened to a stout of mine that I added vanilla to. Guess it's bad luck for me to add non-grain ingedients.

question about those white bubbles.

I checked on that batch this morning and the bubles are all gone

I can still see the sheen and it looks like some really small bubbles are starting.

Is there any chance that thing died?

i can smell the beer a little and it smells ok. I still aint opened it up to taste.

SHould I give up hope and dump?

Or is there any chance?
