I have a 5g batch of a peanut butter porter. It was in primary for about 6 weeks because I was busy and forgot about it. I racked it to secondary with some cocoa. It was fine at the time of transfer. It tasted great. I transfered it about 5 days ago. I came home tonight and found this after not looking at it since I racked it.

Is it aceto, lacto? it is a thin white film on the top that is somewhat wrinkley. On one side of the carboy there was a spot that had bumps on top of it.

Do I dump it, or rack underneath and leave some in the carboy? Should I rack to another (3rd) carboy or bottle it up?





Thanks for any help!

Hard to see anything in those pictures besides flash reflection on the carboy.

Any thoughts? Spent 6-7 weeks in primary, busy as hell. Golf course superintendent in May = no time to homebrew.

Smells like vinegar. Pipeline is 2 litres from being dry. Damn. Damn. Damn.......

this is my first attempt at a homebrew. i tried an amber ale and currently in day 6 of fermenting. just wondering if this looks like it could possibly be an infected batch?

All I see is CO2 bubbles and yeast rafts. Everything looks great.

This is my Foreign Extra Stout that I crafted. I decided to rack this to my secondary and I dropped 3.5 oz of coffee grounds without sanitizing it first just as an experiment. Then three weeks later I got this going on! Yayz!
