Ring Around the Bottle Neck
Cause:Most probably bacterial infection due to poor sanitation technique. If the beer has a ring but smells and tastes fine, the ring may have been caused by the priming solution which was not completely mixed.
Corrective Action:Refer to sanitation practices and/or try using a different type of sanitizer such as iodophor.
