Default Wanna see a gnarly infection???

here you go...

this retard caused it all..



I use an air tight system that was sanitized thoroughly and was in its first month of fermentation when i smelled something weird coming out of the airlock one day. cracked the mofo open and what do i see????? a spot of white! I sanitized a scooper-of-infected-bull****e and skimmed the top, assuming that a beer of 10+% abv would take care of the rest, but no. i checked it a week ago and it was back, but a lot larger. took a picture tonight, and here we go!



Long story short, dont trust your airlock. its the only way this dang thing could have gotten infected. boo.

I highly doubt your airlock caused this.

I think it hilarious that you had a fake mustash on hand.....
Is that Idaphor in your airlock?

Now I think my Airlock will develop envy. He does not have a mustache.

if the abv is that high, are you sure it is an infection?

Did you taste it?

this could be the start of something special, especially since it's high in alcohol... let it go for a while and see what results.
