This is an American pale ale all grain it was brewed 2 weeks ago today. Had a pretty vigorous fermentation even without a yeast starter. I have been thinking this was krausen and it would drop out over time but not for sure. Can you guys tell me if I'm in the clear or if I'm infected? Thank you

Yeast rafts on top.
Lots of clear bubbles show it is still fermenting.

Give another week or two.

take a reading and then crash to drop yeast. I don't know what that white stuff is, maybe the camera.

You're good- just left over krausen and bubbles still fermenting. You've got a ways to go. Let it ride!

Okay so I'm gonna dry hop should I just put them in this fermenter or should I rack to another. I have the ability to purge with co2

If you're dry-hopping with pellets, just toss 'em in (after you're sure it's done fermenting, of course).
