Default What's this on top of my beer?

Hello everyone,

I have a question after fermenting my first All Grain beer.

After opening the fermenter for dry hopping and measuring my final gravity I noticed what is pictured below... Is this infection or yeast floating?



I used the BRY 97 and have never noticed this when I have done extract brews in the past.

Thanks for your help.

Yeast floating. It doesn't look like an infection.

Yeast can be white too. You will definitely know when you have an infection. Those are just yeast rafts. Relax, bottle or keg it, and enjoy when carbed.
