hey there, I ruined an apfelwein that was ageing for over a year in my carboy, still haven't dumped it yet...I can't bring myself to, but I might need that carboy soon...because I had too much head space and there was nice layer or some wrinkly skin on top...pretty sure we concluded awhile ago via some nice folks that helped me out, that it was some sort of infection...well, now I have something similar on my cyser and I have hardly any head space, I think anyways...can someone please help me out with this?

#1) is it ruined? or can I salvage it by racking from underneath of it?
#2) how come I keep getting this on all my cider/cysers?

I'm just using very basic steps I thought, 5-6 gallons of juice depending on which carboy I'm using, 1.5KG of honey and add yeast

I have some pics, as you can see, the bubble formed under the skin and looks like a bubble gum bubble there.

I have a wine filter, would filtering it and maybe adding some sulfites help at all? or is it too late?
