You very likely had a not so clean isolation, or it was just environmental contamination from your cellar.

As I mentioned previously, I am aware of what is going on within the beer, I know it is a good thing - I just threw this out as a thread in the event anyone else has experienced it and what their experience was.
I'm guessing there may have been some contamination from the original strain/sample, as it was slimy before the barrel and my sanitation is fairly good. 99% sure it wasn't the cellar, cultures were blended and then brought to the barrel in isolation, but I won't rule anything out 100%.

Thanks for the responses, I'm just trying to gather as much info as possible. I'll post some photos by the end of the week.

@ChugachBrewing:
Do you remember which strains were affected? This may allow us to get a connection to the beers I isolated the strains from.

I guess you mean something along these lines:

I actually cannot rule out that there might be some Pedio in the samples. I did not use any antibiotics back then. I did not encounter any problems with any of my samples so far. So I cannot tell where you got your Pedios from.

Cheers, Sam

I didn't note them, didn't think too much into it at the time. Just FYI, don't think I'm complaining by any means, I'm just being scientific .

Also, now that work has died down and I've gotten a microscope, I hope to be getting more of my cultures processed. I'll be sending you some samples (Sam) in the next month or so.

Yes, it looks JUST like that video. Hard to swallow.

@ChugachBrewing
No worries and I don't mind honest observations. That's how it should be. Otherwise, if no one is allowed to criticize your work, where would we all be today?

As I said, I cannot rule out that some Pedios may have been in the samples since I never plated the samples on antibiotic agar. However no one got back to me with such results so far. I know that various people had a look at the samples and did not mention any bacteria contaminants.

Let me know about results of your microscopy investigations. And I am already looking forward to get new yeasts to play around with

Beers from Fantome seem to be especially prone for ropiness...
Cheers, Sam

Maybe a spell of warm weather will "loosen" things up, as well as activate some of the brett? iirc, from Wild Brews, a second Brett phase is supposed to come along after the pedio/lacto and lean things up.

Hopefully it breaks up a bit before you have to move.

Right, but I thought that tended to happen when temps cooled? I could be mistaken, someone has my copy of wild brews right now. Here's to hoping.
