I've never had this happen to me on a batch before. on the surface it appears as though I have a bit of mold forming. I don't know how long it's been there but I noticed it a few days ago. it doesn't appear as though it's growing too quick. in fACT I haven't seen any growth in the past few days since I've noticed it
this is ready to be bottled. should I just bottle as normal but leave some left in the carboy as to not bring this moldy type of stuff in the bottling bucket? I know other people have posted about mold type of issues and most people just say to rack from under it and don't take it over to bucket.
this batch was brewed 3 weeks ago. I don't know how this stuff came about. nothing seems abnormal about the brew session or the fermentation....other than this is a batch that I used washed yeast for it. the yeast didn't smell bad and fermentation took off quick, I had a thin skim of krausen about 12 hrs after pitching.
Looks fine to me, could just be that the pictures are not showing the fuzzy mycielium though. If you are concerned, then I would just leave the last 2 inches behind when racking, just as you have read elsewhere.
