IThis is my first batch of all grain - after primary of 5 days it has been ina secondary for a week - fairly warm - at about 75 - but that's all I have here. the yeast is Cooper's. This is the first that I have done with this yeast - The top looks very different - little Islands of pale color - the bottom has another fairly normal gray "sludge" - Does the top look like an infection or could this still be normal?beer topbeer bottom

Your pictures are not very clear, but I would let it sit in the secondary for a couple more weeks. Let it go until the yeast is done and everything clears nicely. Then let us know how it smells/tastes. My guess is that you have nothing to worry about as long as you did a fairly decent job of cleaning/sanitizing the fermentors and everything else that came in contact with the wort.

Thanks
I'll give it a little more time then bottle it - the specific gravity is .012 OG was .046- I did try to keep it all sterile -that hasn't been a problem with the partial grain kits in the past. Gotta use the good camera next time - I was just lazy about that.

It looks like trub to me. An all grain batch will contain more protein than you're used to from an extract (esp liquid) batch. I'll bet you either transferred some trub to the carboy, or it may be that your cooling wasn't fast enough to get a good cold break and it broke out of solution in the carboy later on...

Either way, don't worry about it, but you'll definitely want to let it settle out before you bottle. Don't rush it.
