    Looks completely normal to me. Just left-over krausen.That definitely looks like the start of a
    pellicle. At 5 weeks, with a decent, healthy yeast pitch, it should be done. I've noticed at 5
    weeks, so...

    How's it going now? If you haven't yet you should have an airlock or a stopper with hose into a
    jar of water to keep it from being infected. Hydrometer is the best way to tell if it's
    finished ferment...

    the headspace, so for the first month of fermentation, you had CO2 escaping from the beer and

    infection? were you able to mask it with your additions?

    Five weeks later I put this baby in the keg. Although when I went to rack I had this little
    film on top. Hopefully it's alittle lactose at the top and not an infection. Smelled ok. Guess
    I'll find out...

    I've made this about a half dozen times just quickly reading through this if it's still
    bubbling away let it keep going for 7-10 days. minor foaming could be from not pitching enough
    yeast. lemon is t...

    i don't see it mentioned here, but anode rods can be cut out of hot water heaters we did it to
    our new one a few years ago. that being said there's a new brewery opening up near me where the
    guy is pl...

    ordered one of these. they're on back order but as far as cleaning pumpkins it's the best

    small cuts and li...
