I just can't see how you do it. I mean, I don't eat anything or drink anything with mold out of my fridge, I think it would just be hard to drink something with visual infection on top.

If it's intended for added flavor, that's one thing. But to pick it up randomly and drink it...that's another

Have you ever had a Flemish style beer? Grab a Jolly Pumpkin La Roja to start, you'll change your mind.

It does kind of get into your head that it is infected in the keg, and that there is something on top of the beer, but you are pulling from the bottom, and you never really know how low the beer is in the keg, so I just told myself that there was a half a keg left the whole time. Actually i finished the keg and even drank the last beer, but wasn't even thinking about it by then. Mine was a white beer, so i feel that the sourness was right in line with the style, when it started to show just a touch.

Guess I'll be forced to try something that is meant to have an infection like these to really form an appreciation for it. Still gives me the willies!

I haven't brewed one (yet), but I have had some different Lambics and they are great. Give one a shot and if you like it, you'll look at the pellicle as just another form of krausen. Or maybe search the interwebz for "lambic brewing" and check out some pics. There is some very interesting info out there. There's also a page on Facebook called "Embrace The Funk" with some interesting info.

I'd love to do a lambic someday, but I'm just not sure I want that stuff anywhere near my brew gear and I'm not ready to dedicate a setup for lambics only.

How does this look? Just checking if this looks like an infection or not. This is just the 3rd batch I've ever brewed. It's a Brewers Best Holiday Ale kit. It's been in the primary for 2 and a half weeks. I still bottled it last night. Hopefully it will turn out ok. It seemed to be the most active fermentation I've had yet. The yeast used was Nottingham. I was very careful with sanitation so I'm not sure what could have gone wrong if it is an infection.

So what do you think of this. Is about three weeks in primary Founders Breakfast stout clone. Thanks.
