Default Name that floater!

So I woke up this morning to find that my krausen had died down and left behind...something. It's an extract lager fermenting at 70 (yeah, I know, but I like esters). Yeast is wyeast 2308 Munich lager. Anyone know what this thing is?

since krausen just died down, it could be absolutely nothing.

If to devolops an eye, tentacles or fins, kill it with fire.

You were holding your iphone backwards, and that's a really bad skin condition you got there.

Sorry...

Cheers!

My theory is that it's a protein donut bound by Irish moss that was deposited under the stopper during high krausen. Looks like the CO2 is slowly dissolving it so I'll just RDWHAHB!
