Thanks Krduckman...it just looked a bit like the brett/lacto infections I've seen in pics.Never saw large dome-like bubbles on my first three batches so I kinda got concerned. I hope your right

I have had those same bubbles several times with US-05, no infection in any of my beers to date. You are fine.
