I dunno. That's a perfect ring there, almost like it came from the bottom of the carboy. I wouldn't be so quick to dump.

Take off that airlock and put your camera over the hole and take a pic and give us some more data.

Infections I've seen all seem to like to hug the sides of the surface, up against the carboy wall. Yeast rafts appear in the middle, much like what you have there.

I don't like the little filmy edges of those rafts, but a better pic will tell much.

Good plan! I was looking at the white stuff with the "legs" growing from it. If that's just a bad picture, then that would be great news.

Thank you sir. I've been searching everywhere and it seems like it may just be CO2 but who knows, fingers crossed big time.

It looks infected to me. I've never seen yeast floaters look like that, but I've been wrong before.

If its infected you could try a Camden tab and pitch new yeast at bottling.

Or let it sour and see what you get.

Im not 100% as i see plenty of more skilled and educated people have commented but i had a similar lookin situation goong ln in my secondary vessel. I had a fim on mine becuse i accidentally had my blow off tube vacuum and suck in the 12-16oz of starsan/water solution because i opened my spigot to rack without taking the blowoff tube out of the starsan (dumb noob move)

Anyway could that possibly have happened to you? Aka did you leave some water starsan on the bottom of yur carboy after cleaning?

Also i had similar looking but much smaller bubbles from co2 like the others may have mentioned. And similar amount of head space. Like i said though maybe thats what you have going on (hopefully)

Maybe the others can compare our pics and shed some light.

P.S my batch turned out A O.K. Good luck!
