Default Fermentation restart???

Hi,

I'm making a wheat beer. Just racked to secondary today and added about 3 lbs of pasteurized raspberries. I have some action going on in the airlock (bubbles every 15 seconds of so) and white foam is forming all around the raspberries floating on top. Did accidentally start another fermentation? Is this normal???

Please enlighten me, oh great ones.

You added more food for the yeast, of course there will be additional fermentation.
I used raspberries once, added a nice subtle flavor and aroma.

ah, so it's good news! thanks. I was afraid it might blow off all the raspberry flavor!
