Default Does This Look Okay To You?

Hey guys,

Last week my brother and I brewed a light german ale from a true-brew kit. I waited all week before I posted this just to make sure I wasn't over reacting. I have brewed before and I have personally never experienced this, so I was just looking for some advice.

Look at the photos, and let me know if you think it is infected by something or if it is okay. I really appreciate the help guys!!

You're sure no one threw up in the fermenter? That's what it looks like. It's particularly nasty looking.

Looks like a whole lot of yeast there. I don't think you have to worry about anything.
I'm assuming you are fermenting that baby cold?

I'd smack the fermenter a few times (don't move it) with enough force to knock the yeast off the sides if it's sticking. Doesn't really matter and this is just a random comment though lol.

That's going to be good beer IF you quit taking pictures and leave it alone in the dark.
