Hello! Super new home brewer (only 3rd brew). I brewed an oatmeal stout back in around November. I moved it to the second fermentation in December. I’ve heard of most people keep stouts in longer, so I was just getting ready to bottle it and saw these bubbles on the surface. I tried looking up things and couldn’t tell if they were yeast pockets or if it was infected. When I moved the beer out of my closet, the bubbles popped and looked like yeast or something. The picture with no bubbles is what happened when I moved it and the bubbles popped.It’s kind of hard to see but I added them in the picture and figured I’d ask before dumping. Thanks in advance!
Yes! Whether it has infection or not it can be harmful. It contains alcohol. Take in moderation. Overindulgence in alcohol can result in liver failure in the long term and in the short term can cause hangovers. The infection itself isn't harmful, nothing that can harm you can survive in beer.
