    Oily Layer

    My beer has reached its FG but there is an oily layer on the surface. What does this mean. Is it still okay, shall I go ahead and bottle it? thanks

    Hydrometer accident

    I accidentally used my hydrometer in my fermenting bin without sanitising it. The beer is at it FG and I have only used the hydrometer once before and it was rinsed afterwards. Will it have contaminated my brew?
