Hello everyone! First time homebrewer here. I’m making 2 gallons of a spiced mead (2 separate 1 gallon wide mouth fermenters) and I saw this in one of them after about 4 days of primary. Sanitized a spoon, fished it out (broke in two) and decided I’d keep tabs on it. Felt and looked almost like a soft plastic, and decided that something had probably somehow gotten in. Hasn’t returned in that gallon, but a very small one can be seen in the other gallon, about a week into fermentation now, and now I’m concerned. I made sure everything was thoroughly sanitized when I made the must, and I can’t decide whether I should be worried or just attribute it to strange fermentation. Appreciate any advice, I’m doing my best to learn!
