Did spiders get a hold of your beer? Looks like a family of spiders made their home on top of your beer lol

As for drinking, I wouldn't say its dangerous, its just the matter of whether your stomach can take the funky sourness that may come from it.

My first thought was that looks f'n weird. My second thought was that one of the best brews I made had some real weird mold island in the middle of it, floating on top, before I kegged it. It had a rubbery feel, no clue what it was, but I drank it, delicious, best mouthfeel I've ever had. So... I'd say take that **** off, take a brave taste, and see what you think, comparing it to other warm, in carbonated beers you've had.

That sounds like a Brett infection to me; I have a couple test batches going with that exact effect from a Brett culture I cultivated out of some Russian river bottle.

nothing that can grow in beer will be toxic to humans. As for whether it is palatable...

What if I dropped a log in someone's bucket though? Would the beer eventually kill the E.Coli and whatever else calls my bowels home?

They are saying that it will not grow... but whether or not it will survive is another question. I really don't think that I would want to find a used peanut in a poured beer, and I am sure that it will not smell very good, so I would highly reccomend that this is not an experiment to attempt.

Just my $0.02

Edit: I cant spell, and to think i misspelled the word 'beer'. embarassing

I cant imagine how any cloudy brown disolved poopy would taste in a beer. Knasty.

Hello, I've got some light brown "Discs" floating on top of my beer. It's premier malt/hop syrup only and this is my first dance with beer, although I have done cider and hard lemonade before.

I saw this post on infections, and decided to crack open my bucket. There's bubbles like I'd expect, but the brown/tan floaties on top I did not.

No white feathery or web like infections like I've seen in here, it's just clumps and discs. Any ideas?

It SOUNDS like yeast rafts but without pictures we cannot determine that for you.

How's it smell?
