I bottled my esb about 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. And there is something suspended in the bottle but just on one side of the bottle and the same side on each bottle. I think it is just yeast but I haven't ever seen it in my other beers I've done. I have tried one and it was good so I don't think it's nothing bad I just would like to know for sure what it is. Thanks

Probably yeast. Give each bottle a twist and it should fall to the bottom. I've had similar experience re-yeasting with highly flocculant S04 yeast - expecially with 12 oz bottles that have a ledge from a molding for the yeast to collect. Everything falls to the bottom with chilling too.

A picture would help us help you....otherwise anything we say is just speculation.

Still think that's yeast. I'd twist the bottle by the neck (not invert it) and check later and it'll be gone.
