I was checking out my october fest and found this :


Any ideas what it is?
The october fest fermented for 4 wks and has been in secondary for almost 2 wks.

Looks like a clump of yeast that has risen to the surface.

THIS is an infection

Is the clump of yeast a good thing?

I agree I think it's a yeast colony that has been lifted up from the bottom via co2 and is just clinging to the glass.....

I wouldn't be worried about it unless it was on the beer itself, with "arms," tentacles or other appendages, (or big white nasty bubbles), and singing Broadway tunes...

Does this occur during long fermentations?
