Looks like beer to me! I get bubbles like this after fermentation once in a while and it's fine. No worries, especially if it tastes alright. And if it doesn't taste alright, just leave it in bottles for another month and try it again.

I suspect you may be unnecessarily dumping beer, there is nothing strange looking about this at all.

Beer isn't infected I berleave after tasting the first last night.....but it's prolly my worst brew ever.....it's a light beer so there isn't a ton of flavor to cover up a pretty strong astringent flavor.... Prolly my **** up was josoling the bucket tl keep the yeast active all it would dry it out more, not I read that can cause astringency when it's still on the hot/cold break

I doubt swirling the fermenter caused astringency. If your mash was heated too hot when the PH was too alkaline, that would cause it though. Or perhaps you got husks into the brew kettle and they were boiled, still the PH should have prevented astringency.

What's the ABV? What was the recipe?
