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?
- Conditioning: Empty-the-freezer DIPA (1 pound of hops in last 5 mins, Chico & 644 split)
- Drinking: English Barleywine (half on brett), local sour cherry kriek #2, sour blond on second-use cherries, 3726 + dregs mega-mix sour, Bugz n' Critters sour.
- Aging: 3726 saison w/ Lochristi, GNO 3724 saison w/ brett mix, cherry mead, acerglyn, and a few other sours...
