White particles

Post by Beejay2 » 06 Dec 2018, 17:14

Hi all, I'm a newbie having received a beautiful bottle of sloe gin from my brother last year, which caused me to be hooked on the nectar! I made one batch with the first picking which seemed really firm, that's brewing well. However, my next batch was done with very ripe berries, which had been frozen. I rinsed them over and then pricked even tho they were softer (and juicier!). Added some sugar and the gin, then shook as before. Stored in garage in darkness and cool.
I have now found that there are white particles floating.... I've looked at some posts on here re this and don't seem to see any replies confirming if could be mould....so is there anyone outre that can confirm if this is possible and if so, safe to use or not please?
Thanks to all who can help!
