Agreed! And the bottles will pop the corks as it keeps growing.

Since it's only one gallon, and you don't want to rack to a new container, I'd stick it in the fridge and drink it. It could be racked to a growler-sized container (1/2 gallon) or something, but I wouldn't bottle it.

This looks just like the one and only infection I got in a batch of beer. Looked like a strange ice slick growing on top. I just racked from under it, bottled and let it carb up. Tasted fine to everybody that drank that batch.

I would first taste it, regardless of what is in there, nothing is going to make you sick. If you like it you have 2 options: 1) drink it right now, 2) pasteurize it, then bottle it
