Had something similar in my last brew, came to the conclusion that it was just floaty yeast.

On a different note i ended up with more yeast in my bottles than the brew before, dont know if that was related to the floaties though.

Those look normal. They are yeast particles brought to the surface by CO2 bubbles. "Yeast rafts" is the terminology that's been used before. RDWHAHB!

I freaked out the first time I saw yeast rafts, too. It was my first batch and I even posted pics asking for opinions. That first batch turned out awesome and it's still the best beer I've ever had.

Here's what my Bourbon Barrel Porter (from Northern Brewer) looked like coming out of primary:



Here's what it looks like right now after five days in secondary:



I'm ridiculously careful with sanitation too, so I dunno how this could've happened. I racked very carefully from under the first "thing", being careful not to transfer any of it.

it's funny, I thought the first pic was just yeast rafts but upon closer inspection you can see the pellicle lines starting to form

So, do these look ok?

My first attempt at brewing. Left is a Stone Ruination AG Clone. Right is an extract Dry-hopped American Wheat (hop bag floating).

Both were brewed 9 days ago.

This whole thread has made me paranoid. My photos are of my Leffe Blonde clone. It has been in the primary for a little over a week at about 70 degrees. This is my first Blonde recipe and I have never had any elements on the top of the beer when I am getting ready to secondary or bottle. It smells OK, somewhat sour but overall it still smells like beer. What do you guys think?

Thanks,

Bill
