Default Help is my beer infected

This is my second batch of home brew, I brewed a Hefeweizen style extract, fermented at 22 degrees Celsius for 14 days beer and after bottling it's been two weeks since I bottled and I have noticed a cloudy/milky residue at the top of my bottle attached are some pictures, is this normal and is my beer infected?

Looks like a bottle of conditioning beer that needs to sit a little longer. Nothing abnormal, just cloudy cuz the yeast is still going after the priming sugars.

Looks like it might be protiens & the more floury part of the trub to me. No bubbles or anything.

I had this same thing on one of my first brews. It was and IPA and it turned out just fine. I wouldn't sweat it!

Great indicator of impatience, let the beer condition. There are lots of swirlies, sediments and stuff in home brew, especially bottle conditioned.

This beer is almost certainly infected with some strain of yeast. I prescribe time, followed by rapid chilling, and finally disposal into the stomach of nearby friends and family.

But seriosuly, you are fine, I get this in many brews and they always turn out great. RDWDAHB

Thanks for your help guys, I was worried there for a bit but you've put my mind at ease.

I guess home brewing will teach me to have patience.

break out the clorox. open all of your beers and dump 1 tsp in each. that should kill the nasty buggers.

:-) jk it looks fine. all that will settle out once it has finished conditioning. you generally cant see infections (unless you have a really bad mold). you really taste and smell them though...
