This is normal and not an infection right? I'm pretty sure it's not infected but this is my first one and am not sure. It tastes Awsome though! and smells like beer so I'm not too worried.

It's kind of blurry but looks like floating yeast to me. A good thing.

That looks pretty normal and if it doesn't taste "funky" you should be good to go.

How long in primary? If less than a few weeks I'd wait a while longer.

How long has that been fermenting, IMO, does not look ready to bottle tonight.

Have you checked the gravity along the way? Three weeks should be fine, but you can never be too safe. This summer, I bottled a Belgian wit after only two and a half weeks in the primary, and experienced my first two bottle bombs. After that, I make sure to take at least two readings before bottling.

By the way, it looks like some kind of stout?
