To be honest, I've never seen the little droplets like that. Wish I could help you more. :)But
the transfering of beer to another vessel for a day prior to kegging is a waste of time, and
can lead to ...

Don't dump it. Ride it out. The yeast probably did part of their job, and made beer. Carbonate

If you're just getting started in brewing. I'd consider something easier than a true pilsner or

Hmm... hope you like the taste of burlap.When burlap gets wet, it reeks. So not sure how it
will taste. Gary

So you racked to a carboy for why? Did you need your fermenter for another beer?Do you use
buckets for fermenters?Not fully understanding why it went into a carboy before kegging. I get
that you were ...
