So I brewed this raspberry wheat for a friend. Racked into primary just like normal. Let it sit in primary two weeks, then transferred it into secondary on Saturday. This was my first time racking into a secondary, and I only did it because of the raspberry extract addition required. Now this is what I found today (Monday).

Sorry the pics are hard to tell what's going on. Basically, it looks like a bunch of real small bubbles grouped up together at this point. Is this beer destined for the drain?

I don't see an infection, I see what we usually see on the surface of beers in secondary- Yeast rafts. Little bits of yeast brought to the surface by rising currents of co2.

If you had an infection, after 2 and half weeks (approx.) I think it would be more advanced than that. Keep an eye on it, but it looks like yeast rafts to me.
