i'm suspecting the stopper... it was a smash ale, 7lbs mo, .5oz pacific gem kettle hops. this is week fourish.... it was clear three days ago and slated to be kegged today, now it's going into deep sleep for a few months to see what happens.


grumbles about having to ready a new secondary....

Oh holy night!!! Is that a pellicule or a sheet of mold?????

WOW...Where's Landhoney, or Evan! when you need them?

If you're racking you will give it a taste and let us know won't you??

Looks like a pellicle to me!

Let us know how it turns out. And I don't think 3 months is enough. Give it like 12-18 to see what happens.

It will likely taste terrible at the moment, but if you got some good wild yeast in there, you never know.

That looks freeking nasty. You've done this before? Unintentionally?

Dude...can I buy you some StarSan?

I'll take a bottle if it doesn't kill you. It could be great!

I have something similar going on with my christmas ale...not too happy about it. It's not quite to the point yours is, but it grows everyday.

i've had it happen before..... it's the carboy or the stopper. both or either are haunted/blessed. you decide. six months and it is clear as day, and crisp as ice cold spring water. thing is i only get one batch like this every six months. whacked out cellar sprites...
