Default Is This Jello in my fermenter??

So I was dry hopping my Liberty Cream Ale (by Midwest Supplies, great store) with 1 oz of Crita hops. After a week, I opened up the lid and found this Jello-like stuff floating in the fermenter. I was able to scoop some out and it kinda looked like applesauce. It didnt smell like anything and it taste like nothing (yes I tasted for science ha). My first thought is that it might be the hop oil forming some kind of jell...like....stuff...Anyone have any thoughts on what it is? I think the beer is fine just curious thanks guys!

Did you taste the beer? It may be trub, but if the beer is sour, its good for BBQ sauce.

Yeah its defiantly not trub, I guess its more like a slime. But I did taste the beer and there is no sour taste or smell. So thats a good sign.

Betcha it is. It looks like that sometimes when it breaks off the bottom and floats. Looks wicked.

I am only 7 brews in to my career, and I am already amazed at the things that I have seen floating in my beers (and one cider). Each time you pull the top off the bucket it's like xmass morning This one looks funky for sure, but from everything that I have read, I agree with what you have said - it smells fine and tastes fine, so its fine!

That is awesome that you tasted it! A true mad scientist!!!

You sir, may have just eaten some natural beer jelly. It's good for you... Or something like that...
