  • Posted in thread: Strange bubbles in bottles after pouring on 05-17-2012 at 11:19 PM
    My beer is leaving huge "soap-like" bubbles in the bottle during pouring of my final
    conditioned beer. I switched to starsan from iodophor, and I'm wondering if this might be
    what's causing it. Taste ...

    Shoot for low 60's... That could be your off flavor as well. Do you make starters? Ya may not
    be pitching enough yeast to make them happy in there enviroment..Yes to the starters. Would go
    lower if I ...

    Equipment is 5 gal plastic primaryglass carboy secondaryplastic syphoning tubes/racking

    I had a bad batch maybe 6 months ago, and it seems like almost every batch I've made since then
    has been a bit off. Not undrinkable, but not good. Is it possible for my brewing gear to be
    infected, an...

    Yeah, I shouldn't have said no room for an airlock. It's just a pail with no airlock. I've had
    a few homebrews today. :)

    I have a basic setup for my primary - pail with no room for an airlock. My instructions with
    the kit said to just leave the lid on but not closed. I'm worried this is opening up my batch
    to infection....

  • Posted in thread: Sour taste = Lost batch? on 12-10-2011 at 11:31 PM
    Yes. Sour is usually typical of lactobacillus infection, but if it's a "vinegar" sour, it could
    be aceterobacter infection. If it's an infection, it should get worse with time. Keep an eye on
    the bott...

  • Posted in thread: Sour taste = Lost batch? on 12-10-2011 at 11:16 PM
    Does it taste vinegary? That's a sign of an acetobacter infection, which I believe will
    eventually turn your beer into vinegar, and I believe is unsalvageable. But, I'd probably let
    it sit and see if ...
