Does this look infected? :)
« on: January 18, 2014, 10:41:01 PM »
Here is the bubble, if you can see it.


Here is the particulate matter.
This brew had orange peel and a cinnamon extract made with whiskey and jarred cinnamon. The cinnamon made a goopy substance that I was unable to filter out completely.
Maybe it's that?


I had good sanitation: oxy-cleaned everything, triple rinsed, and no-rinse sanitation.  It tastes great right now.  Is it infected, and if so, with what possibly? I'm hoping you can tell me RDWHAHB

Thought I'd give you an update.  Three days and no growth. I think it's just cinnamon slime from the extract I made. Thanks anyway!

The infections I've had were unmistakable. Rafts of fuzzy mold. Ugh.

I've seen the cinnamon-slime in my pumpkin ale - weird, but apparently harmless. Looked like egg-drop soup in my secondary! Eeeew!
