Default Mold?

I've been making wine for about 4 years and have never seen this before. I bought some must a few days ago. I put 5 gallons of Zinfandel in a well sanitized 6 gallon carboy and added 5 crushed camden tabs. A day later I pitched some Montrachet and activity started within few hours. Everything looked good until this morning.

Now I see what I think are several small mold colonies on the inside of the glass in the head space of the carboy (several others started the same day look fine). What should I do? Should I transfer to another carboy, add camden again to kill sterilize again, and pitch new yeast? Or should I just relax and have a glass of Apfelwein?

Paul

Watch it closely...if it's mold..it'll keep growing and get fuzzy....if it's yeast that's gotten up there from the fizzing of fermentation....it'll wash back or just stay the same.
