If I were you, I wouldn't bring home any women I met while drinking!

Based on his current track record, I'd say it's a safe bet it won't be women he's bringing home.

When I took a shot of this yesterday I was thinking, damn, this looks looks barf or hobo-stew.

The good thing is the gas coming out of the airlock doesn't doesn't smell like either. A bit fruity with a little sour.

I think phase-2 of my ferment is done. Whats next? Leave be for a few weeks or rack off to a 2nday? (My gut says wait another week to two weeks.)

I posted this same question here since its relevant. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f127/rac...0/#post1238932

Well first thing I'd do is taste the beer, if it tastes OK, it's OK.

The vomity type smells you are getting make me think you didn't leave your sampling jar out long enough to capture enough of the proper Sacch. yeast. Remember the first things to the party in a Lambic/Wild fermentation are enteric bacteria (the kind that live in your intestines, such as E. Coli, thus the vomit smell) and a wild yeast genus called Kloekera which isn't of much use.

I would wait for the gravity to finish dropping then rack it to another fermenter.
