Mead funk? With pics
 
2 Attachment(s)

This is my first batch of mead and I used a northern brewer kit. I put it into secondary a couple of weeks ago, and when I went down to the basement to check on it last night, I noticed a white "funk" growing on the surface.

A quick search here indicates possible bacterial contamination - do the pics look right for that? If so, is there anything I can do to salvage the batch?

Edit- the liquid level is right in line with a ridge on the carboy - that combined with some flash makes it look worse than it is in the second picture.
