an irish draught, a sour, a honey brown? Im just confused on what it is supposed to be. Ha.
Anyways, nothing is airtight in homebrewing, bungs let oxygen in, airlock can let oxygen, carboys, sampling etc…
By the second pic you have some sanitation issues, throw out all your soft stuff and I mean everything don’t try and skimp by on something or it will happen again. Auto Siphons crack so damn easily. If you Keg go to those soft pieces to
Clean everything else really well.
Good time to switch to stainless racking canes so you can rack with c02 and clean easily[/quote]
I know right? I wanted to let it age and call it an irish honey saison but decided not to run it through my beer lines.
I tossed the auto siphon that one was in contact with. This IPA hasn’t been out of the bucket so far.
Which takes me back to my question to Pietro. If it’s airborne have I now released it into my brew room by opening that bucket?[/quote]
it is not airbonre and contaminating your whole room (never got where that homebrew mantra came from). I brew sours and open them up so by that thought there is brett and lacto and pedio everywhere in my brew room but I do not get cross contamination to my clean beers that are right next to the sours.
You probaby have something dirty post boil, throw out siphon, hoses, racking canes, keg seals, popits, etc any thing and everything plastic.
Brew again and do a wort stability test[/quote]
So it’s not floating around a leaping in my wort unless it’s on the legs of fruit flies? That’s somewhat comforting.
Guess I’ll burn all the plastics and PBW everything else when I get home today.
Bummer I was hoping to do a side by side of my centennial IPA, one with 2 row and one with maris otter. Alas poor maris we never knew ye…
Thanks for the support guys!
