Try it.... but film yourself doing so for our enjoyment!  It's all shits and giggles until someone giggles and shits! 😋

A pellicle doesn't necessarily mean a brew is ruined. You may prefer not to bother obviously but it can work out fine. If it was me I'd siphon it to another bucket that I don't use for regular brews and seal it and leave it and see what happens. But that's me.


That is what I did, siphon the beer from below the pellicle and leave it and a litre or so in the FV, it tasted fine for about a month then after that started going downhill.

Nota big deal, don't worry. I'm the sort who is curious as to what might happen. They can still be drinkable but are likely to deteriorate and a lot of folk just chuck them. Understandably. If you go back in time this kind of thing must have happened to beer quite often and brewers will have negotiated it the best they could. Often by leaving it for a long time and then blending it with other beer. It's beer nerd geekery territory.

I have packaged beers before and ended up with either excess pressure in the keg or actual bottle bombs, unless they were drunk fast, not lost a brew to off tastes but they have been lively if left to long.

That's why I'd ;leave them a while, to ferment out in a bucket rather than in a bottle. but the longer you leave them the less drinkable they are likely to become. You can get lucky though. It does depend on how flexible your tastes are mind!

 You should have bottled it and then sent it in to the next Forum beer competition... then someone could have tasted it for you 😉🤣

Well I’ve checked my star san and it’s reading a ph of 1. Stripped the tap on the fv and sterilised everything. Will do 2 more kits tonight. 

ive only had one other infected brew before and I drank that but wasn’t that great. 

2 Off brews in 4 years ain’t bad I guess.🤨

it doesent hurt to have some vwp steriliser in..   its cheap and you can soak everything to kill the nastys or use diluted bleach, you then need to rinse them out thoroughly with water and sanatise with starsan, i believe there is a very subtle difference between sterilise and sanatise

check your fermenter for heavy scratches in the bucket ect..
