Im sure all infections have an off odor to them. I never had an infection "knock on wood". To me your brew looks fine.
Yeah, I agree that the bubbles are innocuous. But the white spots of mold-like debris have me concerned. If it's just a bad picture, and those white spots aren't really there, I wouldn't be concerned.

the pictures are a little misleading, the bubbles do not have little white spots in them, they are a uniform white/gray. I have decided to rack from underneath and bottle. Wish me luck, in 3 months i may be writing from the hospital!

I bottled it last night. My process left about a gallon in the carboy so i would avoid the trub and the "stuff" floating on top. The gravity was stable at .022 but tasted kinda harsh. I'm guessing there were a lot of esters that should mellow over the next 3 months. Since I drank the whole testing vial and I feel fine this morning I'm guessing the beer will be fine. I'll post back when I crack the first one.

Thanks everyone for your valued input.
