What's floating on my ginger beer?


Recommended Posts

Did a straight can recipe for non-alcoholic (2 hour ferment) brew of Cooper's ginger beer.


Week two in the bottle and a lot of the bottles are developing a thick but clear fluid or layer floating at the top. Pours and float in the glass as well. Carbonation is great.. Tastes fine.


But What Is This Layer?


Tested 3 bottles now, 2 have had it and one of those also had some darker spots floating.


- Used Melbourne tap water.

- Corn sugar

- Stirred the barrel a lot as we were filling bottles (possible cause being underdeveloped yeast carrying through to bottles?)

- Plastic beer bottles (screw tops)


Should I be concerned?
