    3 weeks bottle, somethings wrong

    Hi, My lager beer has been bottled at 24 degrees for 3 weeks now. The colour is quite dark. The taste is not that of commercial beer, it tastes I guess a little yeasty? or is green the word? The head fizzed out quickly. I thought 3 weeks it was supposed to be good?

    What's on top of my Cider?

    My batch has currently been in its secondary fermentation container for the last 2 weeks and I noticed today some white material forming on the surface. I'm not too sure if this is mold or the cider is infected. Has anyone experienced this before or know what it is? Photos attached

    Cider Bottle Carb Issue

    I’m having issues with my cider bottles carbing. I used fresh grolsch flip top bottles and one plastic coke bottle (w/hot glue) to gauge the average pressure. After 10 days the coke bottle had not firmed up. I popped one of the glass bottles and it’s flat. It’s darn good and strong, but I prefer...
