Default White stuff in the bottom of primary!!!!!

Lol, I never get tired of that. Yes there is yeast in my primary. There is also hop residue on the outside of my fermenter. Very sloppy! So should I be surprised that there is a black cloud of God knows what in the top of my carboy?

I decided to experiment with the last bit of wort left in my mash tun. Why not? it's free, and I had a free carboy. I dumped the leftovers from my Helles Munich lager into the carboy, a couple of pounds of cane sugar, and topped it up. White Labs Irish Ale yeast.

After several days and a little thought, I decided that there were nowhere near enough grains in that batch. So, I dumped a completely carbonated and aged imperial stout (my "Dave's") into the carboy. It is so potent it may up the abv a little and it sure changed the color. The whole thing is now a dark, dark brown.

It just may be drinkable.

Did you dump it in there without using a funnel?

Lol, yes I did. And it foamed up like crazy. I had to re-attach a blow-off.
