I think I'd leave it. It's strong, but if it tastes good, don't mess with it.

IME, if you keep searching for an off flavor you'll find something.  Whether it is there or not.

I would not worry about the foamy floaty stuff. 
Ain't that the truth...ugh. I need to learn to stop searching so hard for faults and just enjoy the beer.

Alright, well you guys are making me feel better about it. I just wonder if it has anything to do with the malt or my mashing process. Or worse, an infection. I can't taste anything off, but I can't help but wonder sometimes.

I get that sometimes, too.  Going by memory, I believe it's typically when I have a beer with a large initial head and wind up with these floating islands when it settles.  I've assumed it's whatever proteins were in the head when it formed initially that coagulate into clumps and then get ingested.
This is what I was thinking. The beer does pour with a large head although it's not over carbonated or anything. I only seem to get it on my light lagers however, which is what confuses me.

It's possible, but I always rinse my glass before pouring a beer.

Hmm. This particular beer I think may have been. It was a helles that developed a bit of a ripe fruit flavor. But I've got a helles on tap now that is also doing this that tastes fine after 5 weeks of lagering. I mean, it's an aesthetic thing, but it's weird looking and I kind of don't like it. I just wonder if there's something I can do differently to avoid it. This beer was a Hochkurz step mash, fermented at 50 with Wyeast 2278, 100% Best pils malt.
I've never seen this in commercial beers, so it makes me think something is wrong.

Dang. Even Sierra Nevada pale ale isn't that clear. Looks very nice.

I wonder if infection could be a cause of that?

Really? Dang. I can see it, it's just very large. Let me try and resize it and post again.

EDIT: I resized it. Hopefully you can see it.

Anyone ever get this in their beer? What would be a cause of this? Is it excess proteins? I seem to get this a lot on my light lagers. Sorry for the gigantic size, not sure how to resize it and post it.

Thanks, Paul and Jon. It's one of my favorite styles and, of course, it has to be one of the hardest to brew...

Goschman, is that straight up vienna in that?

I would use gelatin, but it smells nasty and I don't like where it comes from. I just let the beer sit 2-4 weeks until it clears. I do have some gelatin still, maaaaaaaaaybe I'll give it a try again. Maybe.

Wow, had no idea about the botulism of stored and boiled wort for long periods.
