Default Is this an infection?

I brewed and pitched this IPA last Sunday night. The vigorous part of the fermentation was over by Wednesday or Thursday. I've been out of town the last several days, and today I noticed this milky residue on the walls of the carboy along with a layer of bubbles. I haven't seen this before. Could this be an infection or am I worrying too much?

I can't see in from the top because of all of the krausen material. Tomorrow, I'll pop off the stopper to have a look in & pull a sample to taste. My apartment is a mess right now though, and I don't wanna deal with sanitizing equipment tonight.

Looks okay to me, but hard to tell from that picture...

Looks like yeast rafts to me, and perfectly normal.

Yeah, so far it just looks like you had a big, messy krausen.

Yeah, this was the first beer where I made a starter, plus I didn't do a good job of getting the wort off the trub when transferring to the fermenter. So things got a little messy. Now it makes sense that the milky white stuff is probably just yeast that made it up there with the krausen. Thanks for the peace of mind!
