Thanks! This is my first batch ever and the recipe I was given was with steeping grains so I was a little concerned that I was over my head. If this looks right then I am a happy guy!

Really hate to post, but this is a special beer I do not want to mess up...

RIS OG 1.108 FG 1.022-4 currently estimated at 11.6%. Sat in primary for 3-4 weeks so last week I racked it onto 2 cut vanilla beans soaked in 100 proof vodka for 3 days as well as 8 oz of 60% cacao chips. Well yesterday I noticed this little guy staring at me... I'm planning to bottle tonight because this guy does not look friendly. Any ideas? (Sorry for the bad pic, SWMBO texted it to me... will get a better one tonight)

As long as its not furry or dry looking you should be fine. Might be a yeast raft or protien from the vanilla, ive scraped to hard once and had what looked like protien break in the jar.

I'll look closer when I get home. Looks menacing, potentially furry and wet.

When racking, sample tasted splendid... I'd be okay with less vanilla/chocolate flavor if it means saving it from baddies.

That was my first batch too, but I never got to see it as I started out in plastic pails. It looks healthy and gorgeous.

Is that a penny or a mushroom?

This is my fist batch as well and it doesn't look good to me. I noticed this the day after racking to the secondary. It's a nut brown ale from extract. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/images/smilies/frown.gif

look like yeast raft to me
I got that 1 day after yeast pitching, and it continues to develop to form krausen.

Looks like it's going to be a tasty nut brown ale.
