    Shudder.... Poured a 2012! into my glass...eager for a tasty, took a quick sip as the frothy head lay atop, and got a helluva loogie, straight from the bottle... I vaguely remember reading somewhere that others have had similar experiences with beer on here in the past, maybe not Founders.... Is that a yeast chunk of some sort? To be honest, think its the first time I've had that happen... Random, but just wasn't expecting it...

    Weird, I just poured one of the same and it is perfect. First time I've ever had it and it is fantastic. Bought a 4 pack and I'm torn bet week having another, or going for a sierra Nevada imperial oatmeal stout or flying fish exit 16.

    Happens a lot in Old Raspy. I've tasted the loogies in that beer and trust me, they don't taste bad! Kind of crunchy actually. Protein build-up.

    That should pair nicely with a Glissade slug.

    I thought that I had a loogie in my mouth when I tried my first homemade Kombucha a few nights ago, then I found out it was just part of the mother. Sorry I am a little off topic, but this thread just reminded me of that awkward experience.

    As for loogies in beer, it doesn't sound normal. I am not sure if Founders bottle conditions the RIS, but there is a chance you got some sort of crud/yeast mixture if they do. Who knows, if it is dry hopped, it could be some hop sediment. It would be quite hard to tell considering the SRM of Founders RIS.

    Look at it this way, at least you didn't get a gas tube from a bottling line in your bottle (see avatar).
