It's been in the primary for a week now, and I wanted to take a reading on it. Opened it up and it looked like this. It smelled a little spoiled but since this is my first batch I don't really know what exactly that would smell like. I've been using C-Brite to sanitize everything on the brew day and Iodophor to sanitize everything that touches the fermenting wort.

yup! Looks good to me. Like kreusen and trub chunks. Beer is not a pretty process. It looks like swamp juice through half of the process (2 - 3 weeks).
