Added dry hops 5 days ago and everything appeared fine, was going to transfer to PB today and found this.
Also cleaned out dregs of PB I finished this weekend and found similar.

I guess a deep clean is required- what is the best way to go about it.

This looks very similiar to my belgian pale that I bottled the other day, what was the yeast? You sure it isn't yeast rafts?

The smell was ok and the bear was clear.
I used CML 4 yeast and have used it regularly with no issues.
The recipe was a Pedigree bitter clone but added brewing sugar because the OG was low.
The residue on top was very flaky, not heard of yeast rafts but they slid across each other when agitated.

this was mine the other day, it looks similiar, i bottled anyway and it tasted fine, the white stuff which on first sight looked like mould stuck to the sides as the volume decreased.

Are you sure that's not the hop oils from the dry hops? I've had that before and it freaked me out!
