To me this looks just like the pellicle I get on my sour beers that I pitch wild yeast/bacteria into on purpose. The bugs form that pellicle on top to limit the amount of O2 they receive. Have you tasted any of your beers after they have set for a substantial amount of time or do you go through you...

Re: Keg Me!

Well that does it! I am buying some kegging equipment reall soon!!! Woohoo!! You will like kegging. Cleaning out one keg is better then cleaning out all those bottles. :) Also something I do is cut off about 1.5 inches of the bottom of the pick up tube. That way you do not suck off the bottom all s...

Re: found the problem

Well I found what was causing my odd growth problem. I plastic nipple that was used to connect my racking ball valve to the fermenter had some damaged threads on it. And no matter how hard a cleaned it still must have harbored bacteria in the damaged parts. I replaced it and I have no more problems...

From what I hear some people carbonate it with a C02 tank and drink it after 2 weeks. I have taped beer that was 3 weeks old and 4 months ...
