Paranoid question I know. But yeast has been in there for a week now and Primary fermentation has ended two-three days ago. Just yesterday little groups of bubbles began to form on the top of the beer. Today I look and they have multiplied. No discoloration that I can see, no film on top. Is this the beginning of an infection? Or, should I just not look at it again and save myself the hassle of worrying?

I had to brighten the pictures so you can see them better*

*Also, the really gunky stuff in the photo is the dried foam, stuck to the side of the carboy.*

This is my first batch so I don't know what to expect.

Looks like my pumpkin porter is infected. I have 10 gallons split between two carboys. They both had a little bit of a sour tasted when I moved them, but only one has signs of a infection. Does anyone know what this is and if I will be able to save the beer? The bottom photo is the one with no signs of infection.

I racked my first SMASH (MO & Amarillo) into a keg for secondary after the primary fermentation of about 2 weeks. It looked fine when I racked it 6 days ago but it did have a funny smell i couldn't put my finger on, it fermented a bit warm also maybe about 66-70. The smell was like sweaty socks maybe? Anyways when i racked to the keg a week ago I added 1 oz of Amarillo dry hops in a mesh nylon reusable bag i usually use for straining wort from brew pot to carboy. I cleaned it good and soaked it in star-san prior to adding the amarillo dry hops. Today I was going to chill the keg and carb it up and let it sit in the kegerator for a few weeks. Because of the smell a week ago something told me to open and look at it first and this is what i see.

Appears to be lacto I think..

Keep it chilled and drink it fast is the best suggestion.

And be sure to clean your lines and everything else that touched that beer. You don't wanna infect your whole set up.

Default Anyone ever seen something like this?

I had four batches all get the same infection. All looked like this after 2 weeks. The beers were brewed on different days, but all were left in the basement to ferment. We just moved into this house, so I had never fermented in this particular basement. Been brewing for 5 yrs and never had anything like this. I am pretty consistent with sanitation. I only just noticed the bugs in the airlocks today. I am at a loss (first time posting on the forum so apologies if this is in the wrong place).

(the "beer" tastes like hell so no chance to salvage)
