Default Infection = Bummer

Pretty sure this is infected.. never seen this in any of my batches before..
Took forever to start fermenting.. wonder if it caught something in that lag time (was almost 3 days)




dump & bleach the crap out of that BB i guess.. lol

I can't tell from the pic if its an infection or not. Every fermentation is different, can you get a better pic?

Clumps of yeast that get CO2 bubbles on/in them and stay on top of the surface tension. They should drop out after a while.

About what 99% of the pics in the "is my beer infected" threads actually turn out to be when we look at them.

Yeast colonies on top of a beer are so common that they have the nickname "yeast rafts." They are buoyed to the surface due to rising co2 being released from the trub, not just due to fermentation, but also changes in temp or atmospheric temperature.

Very rarely is the surface of a beer totally free of something floating on it.
