Oily residue on fermenting beer


Recommended Posts

Hop oils in krasuen?, without knowing full brew schedule you did it is not easy to understand. I think leave it and do not open up lid until it has finished fermenting.  Rack it off and leave a few days and then have a taste, if not taste of infection, prime bottle or keg, condition drink.  It might just be krausen residue that has not dried out...


Malt extract  I do not know as do not use it but it could just be as a result of that, go with it mate,

I never open whilst fermenting.  In fact i use pressure fermenting now. I am really a patient with brewing and fermenting, all my beers have come out really well this year, I am getting good reviews 

That's great Justin, I do have a zilla but it is such a mess about and after 3 uses it started leaking gas
