is this because it was left almost 5 months in the bucket with a lot of headspace? shouldn't it have been racked to secondary as soon as fermentation was over?

Not necessarily. Racking to secondary can often increase the risk of introducing an infection, but if your sanitation practices are sound, you should be ok either way. Pretty much everyone is bound to get an infection sooner or later. It may take 10 batches, it may take 10 years. I haven't had one yet, but I'm sure it will come one day.

You're a braver soul than I. You couldn't have paid me enough to be the first to drink what's underneath that. Looks like a zombie took a dump in your bucket after a night of binging on hot arse and cabbage.

Whew, that looks bad. I'm sure I would have shed a tear and then dumped it.
