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!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Infected beer, what is it?
My last lager got an infection. It's a white film that looks a little like soap scum over the top of the beer. It was also growing on the protein/yeast ring on the side of the bucket.

Is this Brett? Or a mold of some type?

That's called a pellicle. Could be brett, I know brett will do that. Can't say if other bugs will do the same.

I suppose I should've looked at it under a microscope to see if it was yeast or a filamentous mold. I'm thinking it was the latter.

Someone on another forum thinks its acetobacter. I detect no acetate in teh brew but I may have caught it early enough.
