Thread: Is my mead contaminated?

  1. Default Is my mead contaminated?

    I started noticing there are a lot of bubble clusters, and each cluster has a small section of it that is white in the center. I give it a shake, and they form right back up again

    Yeah, it's just some minor secondary fermentation or off-gassing. Definitely not infected. You're golden.

    These are infections in mead:
