    You should be fine without the secondary unless you plan to dry hop or add fruit or something
    later into the mix. Once fermentation is complete, just cold crash, siphon into your corny,
    then carbonate...

    If it was only three days into fermentation you'll be fine. In the future, another option for
    your airlock is cheap vodka. Helps to kill anything that gets in there, and if any of it gets
    shocked back...

    I let it sit for another week before bottling and when I did my taste test it did seem to have
    gained a sourness to it. It was somewhat underwhelming, but it is noticeable in the flavor
    profile. I'll ...

    It sounds like you are right behind me with the number of batches you've done about 17. I've
    tried a few alternative styles too for fun and to learn what happens.I use buckets with lids
    for fermenting...

    Another thing to keep in mind is brews are more likely to become infected by bacteria if you
    under-pitch/under-oxygenate. A healthy and quick growing yeast population crowds out the growth
    of bacteria...

    How many other brews have you completed? How many days into this one are you?If you go take
    tour of the "Wild Lambic" forum here, they discuss a thing called pericle [SP].You may have
    something going ...

    Look a little more closely at the second and third pictures, you can actually see where it's
    bubbled up at the edge. It's some really funky looking stuff.

    So, my first attempt at reusing yeast resulted in a really weird film at the top of the beer
    during fermentation. My guess is that this may result in some sour beer, so I plan on tasting
    when I move t...

    This is my second batch ;-) waiting for the first one to finish bottle conditioning before I
    throw up the recipe, just to be sure. From wort taste tests to testing right before bottling (I
    always sip ...

    awesome to hear! Everyone likes getting some action!(also shouldn't you wait till you try a
    bottle before posting recipe? Lol)This is my second batch ;-) waiting for the first one to
    finish bottle con...
