I had this partigyle stout that I left sitting in the back of a closet in a Mr Beer fermenter for around a month and a half. This is what I saw when I opened it today to bottle:


It tastes pretty good. I went ahead and bottled it and figure I'll throw a stout party in a few weeks. It's only a total of 11 bombers.

Does this look infected or is it normal Kraeusen? It's been in the primary for a week today, the initial Kraeusen fell last week, and now this is starting to form.

I agree with android, that just looks like CO2 off-gassing.

Hey,

This stout had a 1.080 OG and I didn't make a starter (It was supposed to end up at 1.070)

The fermentation started liked 10 hours later and the krausen was gone in 2 days... now it has been looking like this for 5 days... it was still bubling 1 bubble per minute, but now it has almost stopped.

Is it infected?

After 14 hours:



Right now:



So doctor, is it infected?

Definately not infected. Just for future reference...most infections won't be noticeable until after at least a few weeks. The only time I had an infection show up was when I decided to use a bottle bucket to secondary since I had no free carboys. The infection didn't show up until about a month after brewing.
