After seeing no fermentation action at all on this peat smoked wee heavy, I was planning to kickstart it again with a WLP099 high tolerance yeast. I was worried that an infection might have set in already so I took a little peek and sadly my fears were confirmed.

There’s a white dot of mould at the top.

Time to throw this batch and these two day’s work away and start again.
