Well, I racked it into the secondary 5 days ago (Tuesday) and I was out of town since Thursday...didn't notice anything Thursday and it's come about since then. So I guess over the past 4 days? Makes me sad

ANy odds smells? I'd let it ride for another week or so and see if it gets worse. If not, just enjoy your beer! It really does look ok though.

Hmmm...I have yet to crack it open since I racked it. I was hoping to bottle it maybe Wed/Thurs this week so I can free up the carboy for a batch this weekend. Might it be too early to bottle with this newest development?

21 days is my absolute minimum. At least 2wks in primary and one in secondary. Go spend $13 on a new primary bucket if you want to brew sooner and let this one sit for another couple weeks.

Hmm...just might can do that. The reason I wanted to empty out the carboy is because I'm going to dry-hop another IPA this weekend....can I just throw the hops in the primary or does it need to be racked to a secondary for dry hopping?

Yes, you can throw in primary.

I brewed a batch about 3 weeks ago and the infection looked like white cobwebbs about half inch tall throughout the top of the secondary. it was difficult to tell how it affected the beer because it had a lb of honey and bitter orange peel in it. It did have fruity and slightly sour taste to it so minimal tat didnt stop me from consuming most of it in 2 weeks and no complaints from everyone that tried it so what did it have and how do i avoid this next batch?

This IPA is on day 12, and it was transfered to this secondary after 7 days (FG was reached).

No bottles to bottle, otherwise I would tonight. Looks like I'll be waiting till Tuesday haha.
