ok so I racked this to secondary lastnight after getting back from a long trip over the weekend. When I opened the primary it def had some thick snot like bubbles on top. I sanatized everything very well and then transfered to secondary this is that it looked like after transfering.



And this is what I woke up to this morning.


It still smells good, I didnt taste it, I might go get a turkey baster today and try it. What do you guys think, I mean its not bad but it is only day one. This is going to be my first kegged beer. Does it seem like it will be ok? I know nothing can hurt me but I keep running through my head, man I bet if people knew about this they wouldnt drink my beer.

Looks like dissolved CO2 coming out of solution probably as a result of you racking to secondary last night. Nothing to worry about.

That's CO2 bubbles. They'll stick around for weeks, assuming nothing disturbs them.

I think you guys are right about the co2 bubbles, when I went to set it back down the beer moved a little and it broke them up and I can see the indivdual air bubbles now, SWEET!
