Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Strange "White Stuff" On Sides of Carboy?
Hey guys:

Can anyone check out these two pics (tiny'd from flickr) and let me know what you think this stuff is? There's weird bubbles on top and this crazy white stuff on the inside of the carboy. This is a kind of hoppy saison fermented with a host of different yeasts and bacterias. It smells sour, tastes bitter, and I love it, but this stuff is strange! Been in secondary in that carboy for about 5 weeks. Waiting for a keg to put it in to let it chill for a long time.

I'm going with flocculated (is that a word?) yeast.

Yes, that seems to be the consensus. I'm so used to it settling on the bottom that I kinda flipped out and wasn't thinking. Nice, eh?

Looks like very powdery yeast. Give the carboy a little twist and I bet most will go into suspension off the wall and yhen drop out like you normally see.

I have had some experiences with brett where they tend to buildup on the vessel walls especially when the walls are porous.

Re: Strange
That's just yeast clinging to the sides of the carboy. You will really start to freak out when the bugs take over and a white crusty bubbly top layer forms. Just get used to it. You've started a journey into the world of slightly controlled infected beers. Think of it as an apprenticeship into becoming a true Belgian brewer. Be prepared to have the beer sit for many months to develop.
