Is my beer ruined? This is a picture I took Monday morning of the yeast cake at the bottom of an IPA that I brewed on May 8th.

You can see there is a 2-inch layer of suspended yeast above the main cake...the beer was completely clear before I left on Wednesday night- got back on Sunday night and it was like this. I meant to bottle it before I left but didn't think 3 vs.4 weeks in the primary would make a difference. Anyone ever see this before? Yeast autolysis?

Looks like yeast clinging to the sides of the carboy to me.

+1 on clinging to the sides. I often get rings of yeast around my carboys all the way up around where the glass indents. Your beer is not ruined. Try a sample and I'm sure it will be tasty.

Hard to say. Better send the whole batch to me for testing and proper disposal.
