Mold or am I ok? Pic included
1 Attachment(s)

Hey all,

I'm not a total newbie as I'm on batch 7 but I'm not well versed either. Making BB Imperial Pale Ale. I sanitized well just as I've always done and in the secondary these white spots of film with very small bubbles have popped up after 2 days, nothing fuzzy like mold though. I'm only concerned as this hasn't happened to me before. Am I going to be OK with this batch or is this one a goner? Sorry for the newbie question, I thank you guys in advance.

Im not 100% as i see plenty of more skilled and educated people have commented but i had a similar lookin situation goong ln in my secondary vessel. I had a fim on mine becuse i accidentally had my blow off tube vacuum and suck in the 12-16oz of starsan/water solution because i opened my spigot to rack without taking the blowoff tube out of the starsan (dumb noob move)

Anyway could that possibly have happened to you? Aka did you leave some water starsan on the bottom of yur carboy after cleaning?

Also i had similar looking but much smaller bubbles from co2 like the others may have mentioned. And similar amount of head space. Like i said though maybe thats what you have going on (hopefully)

Maybe the others can compare our pics and shed some light.

P.S my batch turned out A O.K. Good luck!

Just thought to run this by you guys, there were a couple of similar "bubbles" right after I initially transferred, see pic.

Update: The bubbles from the original photo stayed about the same for the next 10 days after my original post. I dry hopped with 2oz of cascade on this past Saturday and moved it outside for a cold crash last night where it'll stay in the garage until this weekend (it's about 34F) in Chicago. I pulled out a sample with a sanitized turkey baster and WOW did it taste good. It's starting to look like this one will work out and taste fantastic. I'll update again after I bottle and they carb up. Thanks again for all of the help everyone.
