My planned harvest from two fermentors didn't work out to well yesterday. I had bottled the Chinook IPA on 3/31 and then did other stuff including two weeks in Georgia. I sniffed the fermentor after getting every thing ready for the harvest. Didn't smell like beer and hops. Poured out a pint and it smelled worse. Decided to dump the yeast.
I'll add water to the fermentor to make the leftover yeast easy to pour down the kitchen sink. As I poured a slimy white trail with large translucent bubbles formed inside the fermentor.
Perhaps I left the fermentor open too long after racking to the bottling bucket. I've been drinking the beer. It's great so the infection was not in the fermentor before racking.
The fermentor is getting a bleach shock treatment.
The WY 1332 harvested today smells like a very yeasty Caribou Slobber. I'll refrain from chilling this yeast for a few days to see if anything unusual develops to confirm my racking equipment is free of any contamination.
