This is my first batch doing secondary, so I'm not used to what the beer looks like in secondary. Does this look like an infection? Or is this just some of the trub floating on top.

picture is blurry, hard to tell (it's hard to take good carboy pix - try taking one straight down the spout/opening, make sure there is enough light).

What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?
