Default Is this StarSan in my fermenter?

I've always fermented in a plastic bucket. Recently I purchased a 6 gallon betterbottle to use for a Primary..

So I've never been able to see the primary fermentation action!!

This is the first time I've used it and I noticed after about 3 days when fermentation had settled down, there's a ring of white bubbles around the edge as you can see in the pic below..

So is this starsan that has sucked back into the carboy from my blow off tube?

Or is it something else that I need to be concerned about?

Thanks!

Looks perfectly normal to me.

Yeah. Those are just bubbles accumulating in the liquid at the edge under the krausen.

That's one helluva full bottle. Lookin' good!

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

After the Krausen starts to settle down it will often look like that for a few days. It isn't because of sanitizer.

It's just CO2, yeast & beer. Normal.
