sub. There doesn’t seem to be any Kraeusen; what did you brew? Also, I see white stuff on top, is that light reflection? What did you brew?

Aside from proper sanitation, did you pitch viable yeast? What did you brew?...lol

It would be helpful to know what type yeast you are using and how long it has been in primary. The white spots are caused by the yeast, won't know for sure till you can answer my questions.

What is that big brown bag next to it? could lead to wild yeast.

It is a red ale. I used East coast ale yeast and made a starter also. What you are seeing is lots of white spots sitting at the top. This is after a few hours of being racked into the secondary

What you are likely seeing is yeast rafts that have been carried to the top by the outgassing of CO2 that was caused by racking the beer to secondary. It should be just fine.

If that's just from racking it a few hours ago then I think your fine. Nothing can grow that quickly.

I just kegged a pale ale recipe with Nottingham dry yeast. I saw the same thing on top of my brew while it was in secondary. I took a sample and it tasted great. I wouldn't worry about it. Cheers!
