I think my beer may be infected. I brewed it on 9/30 it’s still very cloudy and smells/tastes like banana and clove. The O.G. Is 1.071 F.G. Is 1.005 the recipe is :
13.5 lb 2row
.5 lb acid malt
.5 lb crystal 20
FWH 1 oz centennial 1 oz Columbus
60 min 1oz Columbus 1oz chinook
15 min 1oz chinook 1oz cascade
10 min 1 oz cascade 1 oz Columbus
5 min 1oz cascade 1 chinook
0 min 1 oz cascade 1 oz Columbus
Pitched 1800ml starter of wlp001 (harvested from previous batch)
Missed my OG and got 1.064 so 48 hours after pitching added 1 lb of sugar boiled in water and cooled.
Pitched at 58 and kept at 58-60 for 1 week then slowly let raise to 70.
Gravity has been at 1.005 for the last 3 days, it’s not undrinkable but not what I wanted, to say the least. I thinking maybe a wild yeast infection, I hope it’s not from my jar of yeast because I have another batch going right now from the same yeast.
So I have a few questions
- is it infected?
- can I keg it with out contaminating my keg, taps ect… (Was thinking maybe add Camden)
- I’m going to get rid of all the plastic that was used post boil but what’s the best way to clean the carboy. Will a long starsan soak work?
This sucks! I think maybe what happened is I forgot to starsan something, I was watching football and had some friends over and was on auto pilot
Thanks for the help. If you need anymore info let me know.
