yes I use a cooler, but I just checked and the surface is still good as new. I am not willing to taste one; if that's what it takes then this will be an unsolved mystery.

great guesses ...any more? I guess I will just have to wait until my next batch to see if they show up again

Are you going to toss your batch of beer?
If not then I don't see why you would not taste the "floaties" they're in your beer already and you surely will tase them when you drink it....whether or not they taste like anything at all remains to be seen.

Maybe a bird crapped in your kettle during the boil, I always get bits of trees and stuff falling in there when I brew outside

36 hours isn't very patient. I've actually given this some thought over the last day or two. Any chances we could get some action shots of the primary? In all likelihood the yeast are going to chew up whatever you're seeing.

Invest another hour in bottling the batch when it's done fermenting, throw it in the back of the closet until you remember it, then taste it and see what happens. I bet it tastes like great beer.

As an aside, do you leave things soaking in starsan for a long time? Like your transfer tubes? Starsan and some detergents will leave a film on your equipment if soaked for a long time.

As someone else mentioned, that looks an awful lot like teflon tape to me.

I have left things in starsan as long as a month...but not the equipment that I used this time. Now that I think about it; there was one new variable for this batch. The LHBS gave me a grain bag to put my crushed grains in. I am now going to investigate it to see if I see anything like whats in my kettle...will update soon
