Microbiology is fascinating at times, looking at these pictures. I monitor my first ever brew in secondary (now) every 6 hours looking out for a similar stuff, but so far so good, soon or later I most likely will contribute to this thread.

Yep, looks like a case of "The 'ol Fuzzybuckets" to me! How does it taste?

It can still be very drinkable, although some infections take the beer south pretty quickly so you'll want to drink it fast.

So I added some oak chips to a batch of dry stout I made recently. This was the result!

I've got a few questions now for you lads and would appreciate any help you all can give.

Is this lactobacillus? If so, what the hell should I do with it? Can I rack underneath this and still use it, or should I strain it off the top first? How sour will this make my stout if I rack it quick-like? Any equipment used to touch this should only be used for beers using lacto in the future right? Thanks for your help guys!

Looks like lacto to me, but I'm no expert. Taste it first and if you like it I'd rack from underneath the infection and keg/bottle and drink fairly quickly. Technically you can re-use whatever equipment you want from this batch but you'll want to ensure that it's been cleaned sufficiently, if it's plastic then it's probably cheap to replace and that's the route I'd take.

Sweet thanks for the help! I'll probably just mark the equip for lacto use only and replace what I need to. Can anyone else confirm that this is lactobacillus? I'll give er a taste when I get home and bottle it asap. I'll be givin er a try one way or the other.

This is three days after pitching some Orval dregs that I had growing.

I think that the green stuff is sledge from the leaf hops that I was using. And the white is the Brett.

Does that sound right?

It smells very Orval.

That all looks like krausen from a very vigorous fermentation to me. The white stuff looks to be just foam. Yiou'll know brett when you see it. It shows up months after fermentation has winded down and it'll form a thin white smooth layer across your entire carboy. There's no mistaking it for krausen.
