It's a bit odd. I don't see much of anything in the way of a yeast cake which inclines me to think I may have found lacto or brett and the "fermentation" I'm seeing and hearing (airlock) are the bugs...

Not had any bottle bombs, but I think I had an infection in a Rogue I had a month or so ago. Encountered a gusher.

Beer tasted fine, so not sure if it was infection but who knows.
