Relax and have a homebrew.

Well thats really not true. After a period of time the yeast will eat some of the compounds within the trub which "may" produce off flavors....however these off flavors can be considered favorable. Especially if you are a fan of "real" ale. The longer your beer sits on the yeast cake the more it evolves.

The answer to your question Cos, yes that is normal yeast slurry and trub, you are fine keeping your beer on that cake for at least a month without any off flavors. And even if you left it on it for longer you will still have perfectly good beer, some would suggest maybe even better.

Glad to hear that. I'm new at this so I'm just being cautious.
