The famed ring around the neck of a bottle of homebrew. Hopefully you have never seen it. I have it in my bottles of IPA that I bottled last weekend. Only thing though is that it rinses right off with a little bit of water. It isn't the normal Ring around the Neck that takes scrubbing to get off. Ya think the beer is contaminated?

That is the common thinking with the ring. Some kind of infection. The proof can only be in how it tastes. You noticing anything "off" with the beer?

No off flavors, yet. Pisses me off to no end as this is the 3rd bottled batch in a row with the ring. Guess I need to accept it and realize that I have yet to figure out what the issue is. I have tried everything to resolve this.

Only one thing left, and I won't know if that was it as the batch I bottle will have come into contact with the tube in question. Only batch that has not touched the questionable tube is still in the primary.

If you bottle when the bottle is still wet you will get foam on the top of your brew. Could it be from the bubbles?

I have had a bit of a ring in my last couple of brews. It always looks like little yeast particles though. I just assumed some of my yeasties were doing their conditioning work at the top of the bottle.

No off flavours (in fact my last couple of brews are my best yet)

I have only had this happen once. It was on my chocolate cherry stout. I believe it is fro the chocolate. Yours may, or may not, be a contamination. I had a batch that I believe got contaminated, once, but the only way I found out was because I let a few bottles sit for a long time, about 7 months. When they were opened, they overflowed. Other than that there was nothing wrong with them.
