hey all. i racked my dead ringer ipa from nm into the secondary 3 days ago on wednesday. plan was to wait until the following wednesday, dry hop, then wait another week before bottling. however, last night i noticed some small white things floating on the top of the brew in the carboy. the pic isnt great, but i was wondering if its mold or just yeast or something else? i know mold wont kill the batch and it will still be drinkable, just not sure what to do here. those small white spots in the pic are what im referring to.

Looks like yeast rafts to me. RDWHAHB. Even if it was mold, which I highly doubt, a Two Hearted clone is loaded with so many hops that it would have a hell of a time coming through in the finished product. If you are still worried, bottled it up and drink it fast!
