I've never seen those "rings" on a carboy before. Can someone explain that?

Looks like you probably swept up some dry yeast off the floor with some dirt, feathers, and bird poop. ;)

I couldn't bring myself to watch that after the first time he called the racking cane an "Um...thing..."

I read the title, saw that it was a photo thread and thought you might need to consult a urologist.

I still clicked. :(

I could be some chud that left itself on the sides from a previous batch ? , seeing that they are fluid level rings that's all I can come up with, check your sanitation ?

Is there a bulge in the glass where that ring is of yeast is? If the glass is concave on the inner surface of the carboy, the turbulence may allow yeast to build up in there. Maybe?
