help identifying? Pellicle?
 
3 Attachment(s)
About a month and a half ago I brewed up BierMuncher's OktoberFAST, last week I transferred to a secondary and now this. Can anyone help identify this? Any suggestions on what to do next?

Yep. That's infected.
Might make a good Flanders Red if you pitch a few more bugs, some oak cubes, and let it age...

That's what I figured, haven't tasted it yet, just wanted to get some input before hand since I've never run into this before.

Just wondering how did it turn out?

Just seeing this thread now. I'm not convinced that was a pellicle. Hard to tell from the photos but it looks more like a layer of foam - perhaps a kicked up fermentation upon transferring. Also, I would't expect a pellicle to form that extensively that quickly.

I'm also curious about how this turned out,

Dumped it, tasted sour and very weird. Ended up having the same problem on two batches
