So this sucks. Have been fermenting a Belgian ale for 8 days with wlp550. Day 3 was a nightmare. Even with 3 liters headspace in fermenter it kept blowing krausen though the airlock and making a mess in the fridge Cleaned it like 5 times. So it spent hours here and there in brew fridge with no liquid in airlock. Day 7 did my first hydro test. All my OG numbers were spot on to brewers friend which predicted 1009 finish. Was 1004. 95% attenuation. Weird but it smelt good and tasted good.did mash a little lower than i planned so thought maybe it was lower than I though and will be dry. So left it for the 2nd test Put my tube under the tap it it’s coming out weird. Next thing a 3 cm longgrasshopper comes flying out the tap this thing looked gnarly. Was alive but it’s skin was almost see through. There was no way I could keep the beer after seeing that. The though of baby grasshopper eggs in my beer was already fucking with me after drinking the first sample 2nd “live” sample also looked a bit weird and didn’t smell as great. Firgure my intruder brought in an infection. First batch ever in 5 years I had to tip.how the hell did that thing live at the bottom of a full fermenter ? I figure it had to either get into the fridge and crawlI into the s airlock while it was empty or fly in when I opened it to dry hop. Eggs in the grain couldn’t survive a mash and then 60 min boil could they ? Anyone had this before ? By pure luck bought a new fermenter and a senior airlock yesterday. Have a cube of apa to put on today to replace it. But damn. Was looking forward to that Belgian.
