I had one like that from AHS recently....I thought it had gone bad but....I just renamed it from "Aramis Saison" to "Sour Aramis Sasion" and it's actually been fine. We're almost done with it. There's an element of something in there but it's not too offending. Most people have had it and said they grew more fond of it as the glass was empty. Go figure.

Anyone know what I might have going on here? It was just an improvised IPA to use up some hops - this occurred in secondary after forgetting about it and leaving the hop bags (one leaf, one pellet) in there for a couple of months. The seal on the bottle was terrible too.




Many thanks!

Accidentally forgot to pitch the yeast and left my wort in the fermenter with the lid on but not air locked for a week. Noticed I hadn't locked it up and pitched the yeast and went over and looked in to see this. Think it's salvageable or should I just dump it?

Scrape that crap off the top, pitch some yeast, and try it. That's the only way you're gonna know.

I got two batches here that are infected.

This one I have no idea what it was, but it smelled like nail polish remover. Looked like there was a layer of translucent skin on the top. It was supposed to be a bravo/falconers IPA... But now shes down the toilet. Made the bathroom smell like nail polish remover for an hour.



This one I think is a lacto, but wouldn't mind a second opinion. I am thinking of letting it ride. It was a habenero stout... Maybe now its a funky lacto hab stout? The shot is above through the mouth of the carboy.

Are there any bubbles? I've gotten the lacto infection on 3 batches this past summer and they all looked like a lunar landscape. They all had what u have but then there were lots of bubbles on top too.

No, no bubbles. It kind of looks like a textured ceiling. Any ideas what it is? Doesn't smell bad or anything.

Could still be lacto. I'm pretty sure one of my gruits picked up lacto and there were no bubbles either.

This is no where near as impressive a everyone elses but I've got little white dots all over the surface in my secondary. I know it's got a huge headspace and it's prob infected.

Can't be absolutely certain but I just bottled a batch of ESB on Saturday, it had started getting a bunch of little white specs on top, that had looked almost identical to your pic, on Friday. By Saturday morning, and with a little warming, they had turned into what looked like clumps of very fine CO2 bubbles.

I'd say there's a good chance you're, more than likely, OK.
