This beer had funky white stuff on it after primary ferm, but I had already sanitized the carboy and put in the dry hops so I racked onto it anyway. Here's what I saw after I opened the primary.

I'll just take a gravity and see how low it got before I taste it. That will obviously let me know how nasty it got.

Revvy this is good info. I hope the OP didn't dump it based on my ignorance. I will take this credence to the grave.

Sorry for bringing this back up. I hope the OP's beer turned out well. I meant to say boiling some water with the hops, ie. steaming. You would always sanitize/boil your priming sugar before adding it to bottle. You should find a way to sanitize your hops before dry hopping, no matter how antiseptic they are supposed to be.
