IDK But I think that just looks like little yeasties doin their thang... If they start to grow and cover the surface then I'd say you might have something.

Dear lord, as someone 3 days into their first primary in an opaque bucket, this is some scary stuff. I need to peek when I get home...

A little freaked though by the idea that just because there's a sorority's house full of crud growing on top doesn't mean it's going to be terrible... What percentage of your brews end up with a scary-looking infection on top?

If I see them during fermentation - 100%.

If I ignore them for a couple weeks - 0%

Do yourself a favor and leave it alone for at least 2 weeks. You don't want to see what the yeast are doing anyway.

hey all, hope this isn't too OT for this thread, but I just noticed something hoping for some feedback. Have an EdWort's apfelvien in the back of the closet now for about a year aging. Apparently the day I went to put the solid stopper in the carboy to age it, I actually forgot to do that. so, a year later, and a dry airlock, and I look to see that when I shine a light through it, there are long wispy feather-like translucent fairy wings floating from the wine's surface down into the wine. Anybody have any clues what that might be? Nothing floating or growing on the top... just the fine wispy fingers

THANKS

Submitting my first candidate. This is a picture of something at the water line in the neck of a bottle. I saw it in another couple bottles from the same batch. I shook one of them a little to see what would happen and the little wafer-like thing slowly sunk. Beer has been in the bottle about a month now. Anyone wanna wager a guess what this is?

Default Possible Brett addition?

(sorry for the cross post, I posted this a few days ago in another thread).

This is a porter in secondary fermentation. After 4 or 5 days, I noticed these little blooms on top. They were tough to get photos of through the glass and I didn't want to take the stopper out. They are off-white and smallish with a little nucleus that fades at the edges. They really reminded me of Chicken Pox!

After another week or so, these disappeared and the airlock began to pressurize and burp occasionally. I finally sampled it and it's not bad. Tough to judge an uncarbonated porter, but it was not sour like a lambic. I kept trying it, so it must be beer! It did seem to fall another 0.003 points from the gravity I measured going into secondary

Finally, I stirred the bottom with a degassing wand and re-racked it. Any ideas?

They just look like yeast rafts to me! You should be fine.
