So last week (or two weeks ago, I don't remember) I asked people in here if having carboys of fermenting beers in the same small room as a carboy of 'wild' beer was a problem. Everyone said no biggie, which is kind of what I was thinking. Two-three weeks into my 'wild' brew (a Berlinerweisse with Wyeast's Berlinerweiss blend), that brew still doesn't have any kind of pellicle, but the swamp cooler (big rubbermaid with water/ice packs) has something DISGUSTING growing in it. The top of the water (and now attached to the outside of the Better Bottle) is a 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick almost-translucent clear/slightly milky white gooey substance that's sort of like a really thin jelly. It's fairly uniform, but has a few 'bare tree branch'/spiderewebby' things extending out from the carboy sides to the edge of the rubbermaid. WTF is this? I don't see how any kind of infection could have spread, but doesn't this sound like of like an infection/pellicle? I've never had one, so I don't know. Here's the thing: the beer in the swamp cooler (to reiterate: NOT the Berliner) is fitted with a stopper/blowoff tube. I'm really nervous moving it out of the cooler to clean/sanitize the outside, afraid that in moving stuff around, air will get in and contaminate an otherwise delicious Festbier. Suggestions on what to do or what this might be? It's kinda crazy, not smoething I was expecting!
