Posted in thread: Yet another "Infected" thread. on 07-14-2011 at 07:10 PM
I have some wierd looking bubbles on one of my brews. I'm pretty sure that the orange/brown
stuff (I'm quite colorblind) is just yeast from the sides, but there are some wired looking
bubbles that wer...

I saw some slimy particles floating in one of my bottles, so I figured it was infected. I
wanted to save my room from a beer explosion, so I craked it open. When I did, I got an olde

Would you guys reccomend adding some Carafa III to a Maris Otter/Cascade SMaSH? Just to give it
a little more depth? This is my first time not following a set recipe, but I don't want to make
