Two weeks ago I brewed a Dusseldorf alt, and I put it in a semi-open plastic container in the freezer portion of a refrigerator. Fermented at 60 degrees F. When I bottled it on Friday, 8.7.09, it had a strange taste and I couldn't identify it. It didn't taste like acetic/lactic acid, but it didn't taste malty. On Sunday, I looked at the bottles and they seemed to have a chalky substance and bubbles on top of the fill line. When I opened one, it foamed really badly. Ally my best judgment tells me it is infected, but I've never brewed an alt before. Should I lager the beer and see what happens? Or does it sound like I'm screwed?

Well, here's my latest batch of oktoberfest. This is a live and learn type situation. It was my first lager. I got rushed into make this beer and didn't have time to make a starter. I shouldn't have brewed, but I did. It took over 48 hours for the yeast to kick in, so I think I managed to pick up an infection during that time. I believe this is acetobacter, but I'm not throwing it out just in case.



It's not a good picture because the krausen never fell back into the beer, but you can see on the right side that there's a white wax-like substance floating on top.

Does it look like pellicle? It is two weeks after I pitched the "bugs" (Wyeast Lambic Blend)
