Has been very wet here lately.

Went to crash two batches that have been in primary for a month or so (too long I know, it went quick!)

Mould and/or pellicle. Both taste fine at the moment, finished a couple of points high. They are on the bench tonight but I reckon I will tip them.

Unfortunately the ferment fudge has a bit of mould. Gave a bit of a clean up, was only a little. Concerning are a couple of buts on the outside of the good fermentor - hopefully only the outside!

After a good wipe and starsan I put a yeast starter in there, hope it will be ok.

This part of brewing sucks.....


I feel your pain mate. Went to keg a beer yesterday and my only spare corny was full of mould. Took it apart and soaked it in 75 degree sodium perc for a few hours, rinsed, then filled with starsan before I transferred. Got it all out but it sure makes you question whether brewing is a fun hobby!

I kegged one that had some stringing white mould on it in January. It was a Belgian IPA fermented with Danstar Abbaye.

 

It was a bit funky but I didn't mind it actually. It got better with age in the keg and was slightly sour.

 

This was the last extract brew I did before moving to all grain.
