Hey,

I am brand new to home brewing and loving it so far. I just finished bottling my first brew this morning which is a Brewferm Triple, it tastes like its going to be a great beer!

Anyway, the reason I am posting here is because I have another brew on the go. I started it a week ago and its a Brewferm Grand Cru. Today has been the first time I've taken a look at it to take a hydo reading.

I'm not sure if what I'm seeing in the brew is normal or not. I've googled for images of healthy / unhealthily brews but to no avail. Would one of you fine people mine taking a look at the below picture and telling me if I should throw this out or if this is just the yeast doing it things.



I'm hoping that what I see is similar to what I find at the bottle of a Rochefort 10 beer and not something I should be worrying about.

Thanks for reading!

Regards

Mike

Thanks for the feedback. As I said, I'm really new to this so a little paranoid about everything. Hopefully as I build my confidence stupid questions like these will becoming a thing of the past.

Looks like co2 bubbles and break material to me - all if which is normal.

Looks great to me. Fermentation isn't pretty but it normally leads to beautiful things.

There's most likely good beer underneath that layer of break material. You're seeing the aftermath of the krousen (foam produced from fermentation) settling down.
