My first post and fourth batch

So I have a half gal jug of spicy cyser in secondary, and about 1/2 an inch from the top there is a scattering of specks floating. They were in the primary before I racked, and don't seam to be growing. It is clear otherwise. What's weird is they all stay at exactly the same depth; they float and they don't settle. What are these floties, and should I worry?

It's currently still at ~10% abv and the plan is to backsweeten to taste, bottle and carb, then pasteurize to stop fermentation.

Probabaly just honey proteins or wax, or yeast, floating around.. You're probably fine, but in the future you can post a pic of them to get a more concise answer.

Basically if it doesn't look like something out of the pellicle photo thread, it's not infected.
