Ok so I got home tonight and this is what I saw. It has not gotten any bigger. Thanks for all the input.

Default Stout + Raspberries + WLP645

This picture isn't great, but near the top you can see the filmy, web-looking stuff that has me mildly concerned. I am merely guessing this is the Brett. Claussenii that I added when I transferred the stout to secondary. Either that, or maybe it's something wild from the bag of raspberries.

In any case, the beer still smells delicious, and I don't plan to crack the first bottle until mid March. Feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Looks normal to me, I normally get that webby looking stuff of bubbles, yeast on top of my beer, looks scary but its harmless (at least for me).

Thank you, but do you mean normal for brett. claussenii? There are both normal looking ale yeast bubbles plus this non-normal looking webby film spreading out over the top.

Sorry for all the questions! This is just the first time I've ever used brettanomyces type yeast.

If you intentionally added Brettanomyces, then you are posting in the wrong thread. This is mostly for accidental. You infected yours with it on purpose.. which is tasty.

Lets just call this an inadvertant open air secondary "contamination".

Any thoughts on what you see in there? I think there's 2 things going on. Mold and something else. It was the bottom of a bucket I used as a catch basin for bottling from my tap.

An IPA racked to secondary 10/6/12. My last batch was infected - all gushers. I figure my secondary procedure needs tightening but thought I'd post in case someone could identify or in the futile hope i'm overreacting...

Just checked my founders backwoods bastard clone. Racked from primary into secondary on to some bourbon soaked woodchips (soaked for about a week). Gravity during racking was 1.020. I had a couple beers during the process and thought it would be a good idea to put an airlock on and use the starsan solution from my blow off bucket. Im guessing that some of the liquid dropped into the beer and infected it. Anyone have any thoughts?

Pics of the infection that hit one of my batches at the beginning of this summer.

It actually tasted really good and was definitely contemplating bottling but I ended up dumping it out of fear of infecting other equipment.





Thought it might have started from when I was taking a gravity sample, although I was pretty sure I'd sanitised the measuring cup really well with starsan sprayed profusely all over and inside. Talking with my wife recently about the bottled water we get from a local spring and how leaving it to sit for a week or two before using it might not be a good idea and I remembered that I'd used 5 gallons of that water for a batch or two just before the summer. So, there's a chance that it could have been something in the water or bottles.

Some people pay good money to have their beers look like that!
