So I saw something tonight in my brew kettle, after racking into the primary, that I've never seen before. It was like 20 or so little gelatinous balls of goo, slightly smaller than, say, a kernel of corn. What is that stuff? I used Midnight Wheat, which I've never used before, so I'm thinking it might be some protein balls?

A tan/brownish color sticking to the rim? Around the sides?

it was in the bottom of the kettle, amidst the trub. Dark brown to black (I was brewing a 40+ SRM beer).
