Ha. Yeah, in general 2.5 weeks is too soon, but without the right info (or in this case, any info besides a colorful description), it's tough to tell. "Pertinent Info" would be things like grain bill, mash sched, yeast strain, ferm temps, pitching rate, etc etc etc. Then you could really get a better picture of what you're looking at. Best practices, leave high OG beers in primary for a month. Those "brains" on the top were likely krausen, if that hasn't fallen, it's definitely not done.
