Something wrong?

Something wrong?


Yesterday I started my second brew – Black Rock Whispering Wheat with 1kg Munton’s Wheat Spraymalt (instead of sugar).

Tonight I got home and the lid looks…. funky! Is there something wrong?

My first brew was Black Rock lager with sugar so maybe this is just to be expected with a slightly darker beer with malt, but what confuses me is how the lid became like this, as if there’s been an explosion inside and things are sticking to the lid. But there’s no spillage.

How did the lid get so funky? Is it normal or bacteria?

Update: The word on Home Brew Forums is that I had a near blowout. Eeek! I found this at the base of the barrel which suggests something came out but not much:
