Default Infection?

This is the first time I've had a primary looking like this. Been 3 weeks in there. Time to dump? (I think I'm losing the battle with posting the pictures in HBT, so I'm including the links too.)

I looks normal to me. Looks like yeast. I would taste and smell to see if it's sour, if it's not then it's a keeper!

It's really, really hard to tell with those pictures. Have you done the sniff-test yet? Unless it's absolutely rancid, I'd still bottle it. Actually, I might bottle it anyway.

Just posted in general beer discussion too, I could use some advice about how to proceed.

Ewww, WTF is that thing on top? Looks like a giant mussel. If it is, that's probably where your infection came from.

Nah, a grain bag, though still probably where my infection came from. I boiled it for 5 minutes along with some marbles for weight, then dumped some raspberries through it which had been frozen, thawed, brought to 160 for 15 minutes. Racked beer on top of it.

It doesn't smell or taste bad and at this point I want to let it ride to see what I get. It's a raspberry stout to begin with without a ton of roasted grains, I still smell and can taste some roasted flavors, but a ton of tartness on top of it. I can't tell if the tartness is from the raspberry or infection or both.
