Been 2 days short of 3 weeks in primary. Brewers best american amber. Going to bottle on Sunday. Opened to get gravity reading. Came out to 1.011 which is right about on target. Does this look okay though? It tasted alright. Just cloudy and I dont like the floating stuff. Input?

floaties are either yeast or hops, nothing to worry about
