Default Black specks

I started to bottle my beer today and I noticed some black specs in it. It looks fine otherwise.

Should I go ahead and bottle it?

Are you sure it's not just hop particles floating in your brew? I'd go ahead and bottle.

They don't look like the other peices of hops floating around that got past the strainer.

Did you use a piece of metal instead of a stirbar (in your starter) on the stirplate?

I bet they are ruined. PM me your address and I'll come pick them up for proper disposal.



seriously now, did you put the beer in secondary, or were you bottling straight from primary? if you plan to skip secondary, let it go 3 weeks in primary to clear out.
