Cracking open the fermentation bucket on bottling day revealed some sponge-coral look-a-likes floating around on the top of the brew. I have never seen this an any beer before, and other beers, based on same recipe and using the same yeast, do not have this. It was in a room where the temperature has been stable between 19-21C.
The beer is a Pale Ale, fermented with a WLP001 (California Ale) vial.
The beer smells and tastes a little bit off, like someone mixed some washing detergent into it... Will the beer be alright to drink if left in the keg for some time or is it a lost cause?
