White Film/Sediment on top of my Belgian
« on: October 17, 2017, 02:21:31 PM »
After fermentation I noticed a while film/sediment on top of the belgian.  I activated the yeast and fermented for 3 weeks.  Not sure what the issue is, but having been reading many different suggestions.  Nothing added to brew except basic ingredients.  Any ideas what that is or what may be causing this issue?  Safe to drink or toss out and start over?   Any ideas or suggestions on avoiding next time?

It's probably contamination.  Things happen.

If it tastes good, drink it.

It probably tastes fine.  Don't dump it without tasting it first.  It will definitely not kill you.

Don’t bottle until you know it is stable.
