...or then again maybe not.

Got all this stuff on the top but it hasn't really changed at all over the past week, and now I think I may have overreacted. Since I already started a thread I figured I'd update it and maybe get some reassurance (maybe even the obligatory Revvy "it's just yeast rafts" post). Think I finally got some decent pics this time so whatcha think?

Number one is possible but I use that strategy with my equipment, as do a bunch of other on here (actually got the idea from them ) but it works...

Wait it out... might just be green...You'll know if the sour gets worse...

Still smells super cidery but since nothing seems to be growing I'm thinking I might be ok.

Look at this thread for a while and then look at your bucket. You'll feel better, plus it's gross! Win win!

Yowza, that actually does make me feel better. I thought I might have the start of a pellicle but since it doesn't have that web/skin/slimey/bubbly look I'm thinking it's just some harmless floaties.
