Default Has this gone bad.

Just checking on a fermenting batch. The green stuff is hops. The white streaking foam has me worried! It has been in secondary for 5 days. Can I salvage it?

It smells OK. But Ive had a brew go south of cheese on me before, and I have never seen white funky stuff before.

Looks like the ESB I dry hopped this afternoon. I think you're fine.

You said it's "in secondary", but that sure looks like a bucket. I don't rack to a secondary much (never, actually!) but if you use one, it shouldn't be a bucket with that wide wide headspace. I'd bottle ASAP, and then remember to either not use the clearing vessel ("secondary") or to use a carboy for it next time!
