Mold in the secondary
 
OK, so last week I racked a braggot into the secondary, and today I saw this...

the picture's not great (copious condensation on the glass), but there are a few white circles of (what appears to be) mold...
Should I bottle or rack again?
I was planning on bulk aging at least another month, and from what I tasted last week it could use some age. :(

Def hard to see clearly. Looks like yeast rafts with something else...by the look of that mess in the upper right of the pic.

Fairly sure it's not yeast, I'll try to get a better picture.

Maybe this is a little better, my camera's being fickle;

I've used this yeast quite a bit, that's why I'm so sure that it's not that. I've thinking I'll just rack it again tomorrow, or should I just bottle it?

still really hard to see, cant tell the glare on the glass from the stuff inside. can you get a pic without all the glare?

Looks a lot like lacto,but without the web like lines between the bubbles & clumps. More like a slimy enzime you'd see on somethin rotting in the woods.

That first shot definitely doesn't look good. Hard to believe there isn't something growing there that shouldn't be...

That's what I'm thinking, I'm gonna rack it again later today and see what happens
