Don't be silly. Everyone always covers their bottles before they reach
for their duck.

You use a duck? All this time I've been using an elephant.

I have two thoughts as to what may be the floating things in your batch of Pale Ale.

I assume you made an IPA, and the optimistic explantion could some excess hopps that found its way into some of your bottles. If so, take a close look at the floating material and see if parts of it look clumpy and almost leaf like in texture held together with sedimentry looking material (sediment material would be just more finely crushed hopps)

The other possiblity could be baterial growth from lack of sanitation, but, i have pulled bottles from the dishwasher without sanitizing them first and used them without a problem in the past. Best way to know would be to open a bottle and take a closer look i suppse.

I hope this help...and i hope the brew turned out good...I just finished making a nice strong Porter...and it looks like a winner. Good luck
