So i have been playing around with some wild yeast. This beer has been in primary fermentation for about 5 weeks. It does not have any off smells to it. What do you guys think is going on?

Am I the only one that thinks this looks like a stained glass, chocolate cookie? Man that makes me want one.

No clue what's going on in that beer. Could you elaborate as to what wild yeast you are using?

!!!I AM NOT AN EXPERT IN THE MICROBIOLOGICAL SCIENCES!!!

With that said, though, do those pale lily pad looking rafts more closely resemble cold congealed fat or a typical yeast raft? If they're fatty looking, you may have cultured something besides a yeast.

Not that it isn't worth pursuing, especially if it doesn't smell bad, but it might be closer to a sour than a straight up ale.

But I guess you were hoping for something unique anyway.

I should make a correction...the original yeast was made by a friend of mine. He basically put some un-fermented wort in his back yard with the lid off until it started fermentation...

Fantastic. Make sure to get your pics into the Furry Annals of Funkaliciousness, the Pictorial Horn of Pukish Plentitude, the Queen's Collection of Queer and Questionably Quaffable Cocktails,
