I totally agree about it seems strange inside on the bottom but I did check the bottom underside in disbelief and unbelievably it is on the inside surface. I think I better just get this kegged and bottled. Emptying the airlock sounds like a good plan but after over 5 weeks dry hopping with 10 oz. Simcoe and 5 oz. Chinook not sure what the heck it's going to taste or smell like?

I appreciate all the input!

Thanks,
Jim

Well the red X doesn't look too good so until I learn a bit more (about brewing and computers) let's try this link

Thanks guys for the quick responses. The beer is not in contact with the mold as I can see it. It just appeared one spot at a time in my clear 5 gallon water jug. I like the idea of sanitizer but since we've never had the problem before I guess we've been very lucky.

The fermenter is a half barrel from Sabco and we have a 1/2" clear line with a small PVC tube that extends to the bottom of this jug with about 3 gallons of tap water in it. The mold? is peppered all around the bottom of the jug.

I have a few pictures but not sure how to post them on this forum.(I hate to sound ignorant and waste your time)

Thanks again

Help,

I have noticed what looks to be mold in the bottom of my 5 gallon jug that I use for an airlock. I was close to dumping this BUT thought I would get an opinion from some more experienced brewers.

I used tap water and oddly enough I don't see anything in the tube....only in the jug? This is an IIPA and unfortunately I have stalled for way too long to make a move and I have had dry hops in this fermenter for at least 5 weeks!!

Any help is appreciated.

Jim
