    Re: White floating flakes in a Vintage 17

    Warm it to 120 degrees (About the hottest water from a tap)

    If it disappears its Fatty Acids that were not chill filtered.

    It could be particulate contamination from equipment. That won't disappear.

    Grab a few pieces and let it dry.

    Examine microscopically, fibers are really easy to characterize under a scope.

    I've seen some of these in some OWA bottles.

    Re: White floating flakes in a Vintage 17

    The bottler is brand new and never been opened.

    Is there any easy way to warm the bottle without getting the label all wet and messed up? I was originally going to bunker the bottle, but would really like to know what the hell is in it.

    To warm a bottle, put it in a warm place.

    A heating pad works well.
