haha exactly. I told my friend *who was really really pissed about the beer getting an infection* that if beer catches a cold like this, worst case scenario is that we have to wait longer for it to be drinkable.

Do you have a ball or butterfly valve on the bottom? Ball valves can be hard to clean and can hold a pocket of liquid. Make sure you cycle them a ton when cleaning/sanitizing.

I think you should make the airlock look like a Hooker

Then you could blame the infection on her.

I definitely soak the ball valves thoroughly before use, and run the entire fermenter's worth of sanitizer through the valves. it was the hookerish airlock!

Thats all she wrote, time to toss it as that (blue) is mold.

Got a good magnifier? see if it looks like mold on bad bread.

I would say if its a conical.....take the beer from underneath and you should be fine. and if its not, I have racked from beneath an infection before and was not totally displeased with the outcome. I know it sucks, but you would be surprised how forgiving some of these can be.
