taste it first to make sure, may not be horrible.
aren't Lactobacillus and/or pediococcus bugs purposely used sometimes??
I'm not very well versed in the bug beer world.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I didn't see the need of starting a new one about the same issue. I am totally paranoid so opened up my Bavarian Hefe which has been fermenting for a week. Is this a start of an infection too? Or is the stuff floating on top usual?

Thanks for the feedback. I have made a whole bunch of minor errors on this beer. I will be amazed if it turns out barely drinkable. Anyhow it has been a great learning tool.
