It was safer than the water even when it was infected with pedio/lacto/brett!!
assuming that he/she properly fermented the must and verified this by taking an original gravity reading and an end gravity reading.

Thank you for all the replies. I have a few bottles I can send to anyone who wants one. Examine it, taste it, test it, whatever. If you are still around afterward email me and let me know how it was. I make no guarantees as I don't know what the "floaters" are. Maybe afterward I will get up the courage to taste it myself. I did however drink it before the floaters appeared and it tasted absolutely wonderful.

When I first drank it, it was clear and crisp and tasted great. I didn't expect to see the floaters and was hoping it improved with age. Floaters are obviously not my "cup of tea."

You said it was clear when you received it, but I have my doubts. Even "clear" looking wine can drop some dust and clump; its the reason we decanters in the first place. A good way to tell is to shine a flashlight through it. If you see much of the beam at all, its not really clear, and will drop sediment. Its similar to dust floating in a beam of sunlight.

Even a seemingly clear wine can drop lees in the bottle, and "wine diamonds" can form even in long-bottled wines.

Some of the world-class wines that sell for $500 a bottle have sediment in them- just something to consider!

Did you decide to drink it?
