Definitely not an infection. More like yeast rafts, trub, or proteins.

This thread makes me glad i use 8 gallon plastic buckets for brewing, if i saw everything that was actually going on in this thread i'd probably have 50 posts about infections that werent....makes it easier to just put the lid on and hide in the corner of the room if you cant see in.

Mine is an irish red ale, my own receipe. I used wyeast 1098 a british ale yeast. All
I want to know is do I have to throw it away? Is it going to be sour in a bad way? Or can I still drink it?
Looks like mine. What was the verdict?

BLAST! I dreaded the day I had to post here.

I left town for Labor Day knowing my Breakfast Stout was infected but when I got home, my Cream Stout had the same infection....

They taste OK. Kegging tonight to try to save em.

That looks like lacto to me. The white waxy chunks look exactly the same as my fermented kosher dill pickles. I'd either ditch or bleach bomb hoses, siphons, etc. Or start brewing some sour beers.

So Herbert, as I have named him, has grown and his legs now dangle into my beer. His reproduction is also growing and bubbling. I just want more clarification that I'm still good...

It has been 5 days in the secondary.

How does it smell and taste? Has the gravity changed? I'm still saying it looks okay to me. Looks like fermentation started again. What was your gravity last time you checked? If it was higher than expected, racking to secondary could have roused the yeast back in to action.

White waxy chunks and big white, hairy looking bubbles are indicators that something could be wrong. A pellicile or spider web looking streaks are also signs something is wrong.

Damn...

I've got a REALLY tasty IPA in secondary that been there a week that has those weird bubbles that are separated and on top.. I NEED this to not be a lacto infection. I need to bottle this and serve it at the end of this month for a wedding.. UGH!!!!!

I shook the secondary up while it's dry hopping, and the bubbles all got dispersed in there and are gone now... Hoping it's nothing!
