I've had a number of beers and meads that after a week, fermenting in fridge, have had the bucket covered in mold. I don't know which kind of bucket you use, I use these. Since they are very well sealed, every time I had this "problem", I washed the exterior with a washing brush and sprayed a sanitizer all over the exterior. Until now I had no contaminated secondary fermentation. But be twice as diligent as when sanitizing it for fermentation. Oh, and when removing the lid, do it slowly, there might be some mold hiding in the joint.


I think that the best way to get rid of said mould,is to pour the stuff down the drain, based on my experience. Did you use STARSAN?
