Ok, well I got a packet of coopers yeast, it was all I could find. Pitched it 2 days ago, getting airlock activity and krauzen now. However, the krauzen is separated into 2 different layers and colors... I haven't seen this before. The bottom half is white, the top half is a brownish color, close to that of the cider. Anything to worry about?

before you pitch more yeast I suggest rousing the crap out of it and getting more oxygen into solution.
Fermenting: Flanders Red Ale
Conditioning: Blackberry Mead, Altbier, Cardamom Saison
Kegged: Vanilla Bourbon Porter, Belgian Strong Dark
