Thanks

The stuff on top-- if i shake it a little bit, they sink.

Kinda weird.

Is it possible the stuff on top is floating yeast? Does yeast float?

If it is infected, will it hurt me to drink it?

I think I'll bottle it and just find out that way :)

So I got impatient and opened one 3 days early. Time heals all wounds. It's just fine now, but the carbonation is inconsistent from bottle to bottle (but they're all acceptable)
