Brackish moisture in otherwise tight crawlspace. No plumbing near this. Found in several places. I thought of critter urine, but this space is tight. All ductwork is in attic. Any ideas?

Moisture from condensation. Hows the ventilation?

Maybe the guy who insulated it spilled his coke. It could be anything based on the photo.
