I know post #1million of "Is my beer infected"

Red Ale - After being in the secondary for two weeks. Gelatin added when secondaried. Floaties are noticeably white like mold, which worries. I haven't tasted yet, although I know you will tell me to.

I know,..... not the greatest pictures but hopefully gives the idea.
