Hmmm, I haven't seen that before. Some of my HW yeast gets a thin creamier colored layer on top of the yeast, but even that's not what I was referring to.

I think it's probably just a layer of lighter proteins and nothing to worry about.

I can't figure out how to upload an image. I got a pic of my harvested yeast and I'd like someone to tell me which layer is which. Why doesn't it just let you browse and upload an image?
