This is an English bitter I brewed a little over 2 weeks ago. Are those white spots some kind of yeast rafts or maybe an infection?

Thanks,
Zach

Are they tiny white bubbles? If so, you are fine.

I think they are. At least that's what it looks like to me.

Looks like yeast rafts to me. You should be good to go.
