You should do one of those great explanations you do in the spirit of the "my OG is way off!" That 99% of people who post about infection worry have normal beer.

Don't want to hijack your thread but I'm glad to see your worries have been eased. I'm hoping to be one of those 99%ers right now and looking to be told to stfu and RDWHAHB also so here goes. If anyone can shed some light on these small white orbs I'd greatly appreciate it.

Note: the stringy looking stuff in the corner is my muslin bag.

I can't tell just from a picture. I'll need to taste to be sure. About a six-pack should do. Do you have my mailing address?

It looks just like it should, relax. I've had the same thing on many of my beers.

Just Hearing it's not infected is worth more than a six pack to me! Thanks guys I appreciate the quick replies. That is great news and am much more excited about this new beer when I bottle it on Wednesday. Thanks again!

Cheers

I see it more on the dark beers than the light beers. They remind me of mineral deposits I have wondered if it might be CO2 bubbles carrying minerals from the water to the surface, collecting and then and leaving them there when they pop. Maybe not, but the beers have still tasted as expected.

Close, its just yeast that got pulled up and or has yet to sink from being pushed up during krausen.
