Yeah, meant to type 1.003, sorry.

When I started to rack, the stuff on the top dropped out. There wasn't a film, just those two bits.

I've got them in a tile-floored closet with a plastic bag underneath, just in case, but hopefully it'll be just fine, as I'm hoping to use this as wedding beer.

well once it carbs up then refrigerate it and that will slow down the indfection if that's what it actually was.

Unfortunately, this was planned as a gift so i can't keep them cold throughout....

After the beer is finished carbing, Would a stove top pasteurization process be ok, kill the bacteria, but leave tasty beer behind?

Maybe just change the person who this gift is for and choose a "less loved" one

You will notice the bottles becoming over carbonated before you have explosions. Try one very week or so to be sure.

Every brides dream; a bottle of suspicious home brew!

I have never tried pasteurizing beer in the bottle so I can't answer that.

Here is a guide on pasteurising cider at least:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f32/easy...g-pics-193295/

To determine the effect on flavour you could do a test with some of the bottles and let us know! Just be sure to leave enough time so that the final set of bottles to be pasteurised are not too highly carbonated

Yeah, I've had good luck with pasteurizing my first batch of cider before... I'll give it a shot after I hit near proper carbonation levels. If it works, I'll do it just to be safe, rather than put bombs inside the wedding hotel welcome bags at my june wedding, lol

I have several other planned. At least an ipa and amber, just tasting a Hefeweizen that turned out well. I have some cider too. Why wouldn't a Kolsch work well before June?
