Default Did I make jello in my wort?

I brewed up a new one yesterday:
9 lbs American 2 row (Muntons) and 1/2 lbs chocolate (Muntons),
mashed (very thick) at 128°F for 30 min,
raised to 152°F with 180°F infusion and held 1 hr.
Started the run off using my newly fabbed 18" stainless steel braided sheath - worked great!
After clearing, I started collecting in my wort kettle and began to heat it up to prepare for the boil down (while sparging continued). After ~5 gal run off, I turned up the heat to get it boiling but noticed floating blobs in the wort. I scooped these floater out and they looked like jello, but brown like Thanksgiving gravy when it cools down.
What was this stuff?
I have been doing a protien rest on previous batches with this malt, but skipped it on this batch to increase the head retention and body. Was the jello coagulated protien?

Looks like you did do a protein rest? In any case, I would guess that the blobs were indeed protein/break material.
