Has my better bottle been visited by aliens? Just racked my 1st AG (Ed's Haus Pale) to my secondary yesterday and now today i've got a strange ring on top. Is this normal?

I will speculate that stirring things up in the racking process caused a little fermentation.

It's degassing after racking it. Perfectly normal.

Lol...that wasn't the intention but I messed up on my pre-boil volume...It was my 1st all grain and the day started off on the wrong foot. My bottling bucket spigot cracked which I was going to use measure the wort colllected from the tun....then I couldn't find my ported better bottle stopper at the time so I used my old fermenting bucket to ferment in which leads to my old racking cane to transfer to clearing tank which leads to me not getting enough beer into the clearing tank ... all n all it didn't go THAT bad
