IPA , I only took an og reading which was 1.064. I thought it might be krausen yeast but wasn't sure Thanks for your help

The benefit to a highly hopped IPA is the hop oils are naturally anti-septic and you are less likely to get an infection. My last IPA took about 2+ weeks to completely ferment. You have a long condition period to go for best flavor, so give it some time and it should drop out of suspension and settle with the trub. Otherwise, there are many people on this forum who are willing to take the beer off your hands if you feel it's infected!

Normally I would just keg this and not even think about the floaties. But since I left Biermuncher's Cream of Three Crops in primary for about 3 months I'm slightly concerned.

It smells shockingly sweet, about to keg but thought I'd throw a picture on here and see what you think!

Is it infected or just yeast rafts or co2?

Does a sour mash with wild yeast/lacto from uncrushed grain count? Haha, I just opened up my first attempt at Berlinner Weiss last night with a couple buddies and nothing can prepare you for that funk. It seriously smelled like the Mexican carts in Chicago selling that mayonaisse covered elotes corn cobs mixed with my rugby rucking pads after a game. Smelled terrible, tasted tart and delicious.

Mind you it will get uglier as the yeast ejaculate all over the top of it.

Then as fermentation finishes.. it will fall to the bottom leaving a few little floaters.

At this point you shouldnt have to worry about infection. Just make sure the "seal" isn't broken until bottling time and your good.

Making my first attempt at fruit beer, cherry wheat. I put cherry puree in the secondary (and this is the picture). Is this just krausen forming in the secondary?
