I can't... 1 year and one month in, 30 batches with no infections.

Damn, I just jinxed myself!

This is the pic I got: http://imgur.com/slhuu Smells malty. I hope it's nothing. It's been slow to take off. This is about a week in.

I wouldn't worry about it. those look like yeast rafts. just seal it up and let her rip for at least another week till you take a gravity reading.

It still tastes fine, which is why I'm curious what it is.

Started making some ciders, inside the neck of my carboy there are some white splotches...its not on the cider itself so im hoping if it is an infection it cant get down to the liquid with all the CO2 going since its fermenting quite furiously.

Not sure if i should try wetting something in starsan and then trying to wipe it out...or just let it sit for the next 4-5 months with the CO2 blanket and hope if it is an infection it doesnt get in...

Although is it possible for an infection to take hold after the beer has already fermented out all of the sugars?

I hope this is not considered thread jacking.

how long does it take for the beer to turn sour or rancid whatever.....
and will it continue in the bottle if most things cant grow in c02?
should "infected" beer be bottled post haste or leave in carboy or....??
mine with the lacto white film and bubbly ( ring around the carboy)taste sweet.
thats the off flavour for now.
that must change huh?
