I see, there's your problem right there! You're supposed to add the sirloin AFTER primary fermentation is complete, not before. Silly rabbit, adjuncts are for kids.

That's my .02. Good luck with the ground beef thing.
washing and reusing yeast is funky stuff?

No...just look for his other recent thread. Have you ever re-used grain...not a parti-gyle mind you, but literally saved old grain and rebrewed with it? That's pretty funky. And again, I said in my OP that there's nothing wrong with it, then stated what I preferred to do.

Funky is a subjective word. I chose how to use it. Sue me.

I agree. The OP had that thread about reused grain and something else, right. No matter how 'subjective' the term funky may be, one's bound to get some funk in their brew when they reuse spent grain as part of the grist.

I had some US-05 I used for a stout that came out looking like what I imagine yours did, at least in terms of texture. Mine was much lighter in color, probably a bit closer to the cottage cheese example. In any case, it was quite unpleasant to behold. My krausen did fall, however.

I've been through 6 fermentations now, each one different in its own way, and the 4 of those I've tasted in their final state have all been enjoyable. It's like a snowflake. Or a fingerprint. Or, rather often, sort of like excrement.
