Good call...I'll grab one and the grill by the pool later lol. On a side note, I checked in again this morning on the brew and it looks a little better today. I can see a bunch of little yeasties floating around the edge of the carboy and less of the rafts up top, so I'm not as worried now.

First Batch in primary.....total wrong thread to read, but I just had to look at EVERY single photo!

However, now I'm getting paranoid--- before I read this I went an opened my Ale Pail for the first time to get a gravity reading. Looked okay, but I remember 2 things that happened that really are starting to worry me after seeing this thread:
1) When I sealed the lid back up, although I was careful, a drop of the water dripped down from the airlock when the lid jerked
2) When I reached in to get my sample, with only half of the lid unsealed and pried up (didn't want to spill the airlock water), The top of my hand brushed against the underside of the lid. I previously washed my hands, but we all know what germs lie on our hands even after washing.

Someone please tell me I am okay..? If I did infect it, how long would it take to show? I am transferring to secondary tomorrow, then bottling after about 1-2 weeks. Will I see it, if in fact it is in there lurking?

#1) The first time I pulled the lid on my first batch, it sucked about half the contents of the airlock (I had bleach water in it) into the brew. I now use vodka in the airlocks. Anyway, that batch is in bottles now and tastes fine.

#2) Have a spray bottle of Star San on hand and when it doubt spray it. Every time I pull the lid/airlock for a gravity reading I spray the underside of the lid and stem of the airlock before I put them back on.

It's all good man...RDWHAHB!

Well that's no fun

I'm guessing the cubes did it?

yeah dude, this is just a CO2 escaping from liquid, not the infection. I see this all the time
