Default White stuff

last night I brewed a rye red ale and now I have white stuff floating in my krausen! Is this mold? Do I need to dump this batch?

Yeast can be white.

I was thinking it was maybe yeast. I'll post a pic as soon as I find my camera. Its a few blotches of white.

Open it up and smell it. If it smells healthy then you're probably okay.

carry on, and stop looking at it
