My brown ale has been in the secondary for week or so and I'm just about to bottle it.

Everything looks completely normal except for one small green spot floating on the top with the bubbles. Now I'm talking small, about the size of a pea. I tried to take a picture but it didn't turn out.

Ok, so I'm guessing that its mold, but its not growing larger or looking worse.

Think I should just dump the batch or just go ahead and bottle it?

Dude, it could be some hops. I've never had one, but I don't think that is what infection looks like.

Never forget that yeast are fungi, CO2 is bubbles and hops are green. Bottle it.

Only one way to find out. Fish it out and eat it.

Well, it is bright green, but what do I have to lose.....time, sugar and the beers I drink while I bottle.

I'm sure its fine.
