Surprise! It's another "is this infected" thread! Anyways, this wierd brown stuff started floating on the krausen. Everything OK? It is still bubbling away (for two weeks).

Probably fine - but you knew that, right? Brown gunk is pretty normal.

Looks normal to me. Lots of gunk gets caught in the bubbles and collects at the top.
