anyone have any idea what this looks like?

if this helps at all, it is an all pils saison fermented with white labs belgian saison yeast...

i racked from underneath the bubbles, and the bubbles started forming after a few days.

it is hard to tell from the taste... this is my first time brewing a saison, so i am not sure if i am tasting the natural character of the yeast or if the flavors on the finish are in fact the sign of an infection...

Oh and name it if you can.

I think that was a brown ale and I left it in secondary for probably 3 weeks.

No need to worry. Mold won't hurt your beer. If you don't punch your fruit down every few days to keep it wet, it will mold. Just rack from under it when it's ready and it'll be fine.

Thanks for the heads up. I did not push it down nor have I bottled yet and it still looks ok. I need to bottle it tonight though, it has been on the fruit about a month now.....

Brewed four batches in one week and they all came up with varying degrees of this

http://picasaweb.google.com/10848872...89311210291122

finished 2 of the batches, drinking another now, and about to keg the last...

Flavor not really affected so far, the one I am drinking now was actually a kentucky common ale that was intentionally soured, so there is a very mild sour flavor but, it was done in the mash on purpose...

All fermented in different buckets and primaries, with different airlocks...May have cross contaminited when checking fg.

Plan on replacing the mash tun(not great to begin with), tubing, etc...

Will clean the bejeezus out of all else.

You shouldn't need to replace the mash. Any bugs that are in the mash will be boiled off anyways.
