What is floating in my beer

This looks disgusting. I have no idea what this is or where it came from. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Gross! So how did the beer taste? :yum:

That’s an undead Beer Eel. If you have the sudden urge to eat brains, seek medical help.

Pretty good actually. No, sick. I’m afraid to drink any of them now. It looks like a tape worm or something. I haven’t been this turned off by a beer since I had a warm Milwaukee’s Best Ice.

Check the gasket on you bucket lid if you used a bucket. My lid left little pieces of black plastic. Retrace all your steps, the answer is there somewhere.

Kinda resembles the worm at the bottom of a bottle of mezcal…

Do you have that in all the beers you bottled? Or just this one?

My best guess is a ring of gunk from a not-well-rinsed bottle that floated up after filling. I speak from experience… I have no idea how one gunky bottle ended up in my supply.


I did that.


+1 on uberculture’s comment. Sure looks like a ring of yeast or something from around the outside edge of a not so clean bottle.

I saw some of those worms after cleaning some commercial bottles. Just gunk, must have missed one.

Just one thank goodness.

Ah yeah. That sounds like a bit of gunk was stuck in there before filling. Glad it was just one!

Using the “valley girl expression” EEEWWWEE!!! :joy: Sneezles61
