Default film on the side of ferment bucket

hi,

ive done about 15 all grain brews now and ive never had a sort of scum left the inside edges of my primary.
its a light brown in colour, im not to worried as it looks okay(although the colour does seem darker than what my software suggested) and smells alright, just curious as ive not seen it before.
unfortunately i don't have a camera atm so cant get a picture.

its almost as if some of the settlement has stuck the side

It's simply the ring of krausen that stuck to the sides, no worries

The beer looks fine. How one could run 15 batches and never see a krausen ring is the real mystery here...

Cheers!

I have had something like that on the side of the carboy, it looked like yeast that had dropped out and stuck to the sides instead of making it to the bottom. Beer turned out fine.
