Do you use a NO-Rinse cleaner such as B-Brite or similar? I dont hink its much to worry about, just wipe it off with a sanitized towel or paper towel.

I understand but if you used a no rinse cleaner this stuff can build up and anacidic juice can break it down and suspend it. Its probabl just the froth of a healthy fermentation that has settled down a little though.

Wade I cleaned the carboy, before I racked it with a clorinated detergent, rinsed with tap water, and then added some sodium metabisulphite, swished it around, and rinsed with tap water, three times and racked from my primary into the carboy.
