Default Amusing beer photo

So, I have just checked in on my blonde ale from the weekend which is happily fermenting away. I was amused to see, however, a strange sight. Typically, trub is on the bottom, followed by beer layer, and finish off with a layer of krausen. This beer is backwards. Little trub, beer, krausen, big trub!

Check it out. Not worried, just amused. Any ideas what happened?

cool photo, Ive seen something pretty similar, but all that should fall to the bottom after fermentation is through...except for the bit that sticks to the carboy at the beer level. thats why they call ale yeast a "top fermenting yeast"

your making beer thats what happened!

looks perfectly normal to me! are you using a different strain of yeast than normal, that could be the cause for a different looking fermentation.

Another photo if the first was "too close for comfort."

Nope. Straight up boring US-04. You say it looks normal to you... The top "oatmeal-ish" layer isn't krausen. It's trub. That happens to you alot?

Looks normal. As previous posters said, it will fall by the end of fermentation. What type of yeast?

I don't typically use s04 but, I do use a lot of WLP007 and it looks like that all the time. Same thing from WLP005 on a recent batch. It might look like trub, but it's yeast. Those english strains are super flocculant and clump together like cottage cheese. All that crap will drop out when it's done, and if any clings to the top, it will drop as soon as you move the carboy.
