So I peeked into my primary fermenter today to see a ton of small tangible strings dangling from the surface of the fermenting beer. Fearing the worst, I decided to go ahead and do a gravity check, and taste/smell the beer. The beer tasted/smelled fantastic. Everything seems normal. So I am assuming that these strings are the yeast cells sticking to one another or something while going dorment. The yeast strains I am using are WLP099, and US-05 to help finish out the high gravity stout because I under pitched (1.125).
My question is if you guys have ever seen anything similar? I know it is probably nothing to really worry about, but I am really curious to what the hell these string formations are. I’ll try and take some good pictures when I have time later.
