it's an american pale ale that i brewed on April 11th. i got vigorous fermentation for almost a week and then airlock activity for another week after that--it's been 3 weeks now at a steady 67 degrees, but doesn't seem to want to settle out. almost looks like soap bubbles in there and maybe hop particles on top.

any help is appreciated.

Looks like some yeasties, CO2 bubbles and some hop carnage to me.

Yes, it's definitely infected. Throw it out and never brew again. :p

I do not think it is an infection, but if you want to send me the carboy full of beer I will be happy to test it out for you.

Every brew that I brewed so far( a whopping 4 brews) have looked liked that. And all came out great!

lol..bunch of comedians...

seriously tho, I've never had a beer fail to clear (at least to little white yeastie spots) by three weeks in the carboy...so sacstate, you think 5 weeks total in the carboy is ok?

I've got a mild right next to it in the converted freezer that was brewed a week later and has almost completely cleard, I guesss that's why I was a bit nervous.

thanks.
