Took this photo before I left for work this morning. This is about 12 hours after pitching yeast (wlp029) and I noticed this white stuff in the kreusen, never seen it before though. Think I have an infection?

Looks normal to me. Give it the sniff test when you get home just to verify - after letting the CO2 vent first ofc

Most likely its tiny co2 bubbles being released as ferm takes place. I wouldn't sweat it.

Don't know if there's some optical effects going on there, but the sharp edge in the white film just to the right of center makes me think that might be a pellicle starting to form...
