Default Is this a bad sign?

My Irish Red Ale is currently in seconary, about 3 days now. Everything as far as readings and taste has been fine so far. But I've noticed some deposits floating at the top of the wort. Is this normal? Maybe just yeast settling?


Not a great shot, but it almost looks like if you were to sprinkle flour on the surface.

looks to me like it may not have finished fermenting and you got a little bit of kraussen going on there

Nope, it's just the natural fermentation process
