Default Wierd junk on krausen

Surprise! It's another "is this infected" thread! Anyways, this wierd brown stuff started floating on the krausen. Everything OK? It is still bubbling away (for two weeks).

Probably fine - but you knew that, right? Brown gunk is pretty normal.

Looks normal to me. Lots of gunk gets caught in the bubbles and collects at the top.
