Default Please say this looks ok

Just opened the fermenter to check FG and saw this on top. Please tell me this looks normal.

from the photo, I'd say its yeast - no worries. When its time to bottle/keg, just rack from underneath it.

Dont quite understand this, but whatever. I took the top off to check for FG for the first time. This is the first time I have seen it since I sealed it up and let it ferment. Gonna check the FG tomorrow or Saturday and if it is still at 1.012, Im gonna bottle it. Im not unrelaxed at all. I just had never seen what I saw before, thats all.

just relax... that's all... nothing to understand

your beer is fine

but, i really do suggest you give it at least 3 weeks in the bottles.

i opened a wheat beer a little bit early, and was really disappointed because I thought i did something wrong. turns out that what i did wrong was open the beer too soon.

waited another couple weeks before i opened the next one, and it made a world of difference.

now i leave EVERYTHING in the bottle for a month, and it's working out much better.

it was my biggest lesson as a home brewer... you just can't do anything to make it go faster, and when i tried to, i messed things up, so i quit doing that.
