Default In the secondary

I just siphoned my winter ale into a secondary. I'm really excited for this one. I have it a taste and its exceptional already. Didn't even get a hint of sweetness so I'm guessing it should be don't soon. Now question. I haven't seen this in my previous brews but I had a lot of floating clumps on top of the beer. What may this be? Slight infection? I'm not sure but it taste great! Thanks

could be lots of different things, a photo would definitely help.

98% chance that it's just yeast.

You know I didn't have my phone on me. But it was multiple little clumps but it could of been anything. I tasted the beer. No off flavors so I'm assuming its good to go. Guessing it was just fermentation aftermath. I'm just so excited about this brew I had to post it on here. Ha
