White spots on my ferment...

Postby Chief » Sun Mar 11, 2007 5:14 am

Guys I have some white specs on the top of my brew...this is a new batch called Sin City Lager, not sure if it is contaminated or not? Thoughts? I can snap a pic (which I should have done at first) if needed.

Are you sure it's not just a few yeast colonies starting to form? As you suggest, a photo or two would probably help.

What stage of the brewing process is the beer in? Are you starting fermentation? Is it finished? More info would be needed to try to help.
