    You can drink it, nothing harmful grows in beer.You may not want to drink it, though.Sanitation
    is key. Can't tell from the picture, but most common spoilers produce a pellicle like that. It

    Thank you for doing this test. If I read the Grady Hull report correctly it would need a

    Hi folks. New to the forum. This seems like a wonderful resource for beer making. Just found
    this thread and it is exactly what I'm in the middle of.Yesterday, (I'm a day late, here) I
