Default What is this?! About to keg.

Hey All,

I'm about to keg a pale ale and opened up the primary to find this floating on the top. Not sure what it is. I was a it sloppy when pouring it from the kettle to the bucket but it is long and I can't imagine it being a hop pellet.

Thanks!

it looks like an odd yeast or protein rope.

Didn't lose a parakeet did you?

Looks like rope or twine. Did you have a hop bag in there?
