I think I have my first infection...
Irish red that has been in the primary for two months and when I cracked it open to bottle (unless I'm racking onto fruit or oak chips, I hardly ever use a secondary) this is what I was greeted by. Haven't seen this in my brews before. The small hole in the scum is from when I took a gravity reading. Instead of panicking, I tried to carefully siphon under the top layer into my bottling bucket. I did a decent job but might have got a small amount of this scum in the bottling bucket. Then I bottled it and am optimistic that everything will be fine in the end.
It didn't smell or taste funny, although I didn't taste the scum! I even had my wife try it to see if she noticed anything (I didn't tell her that I suspected it might be infected 'cause she never would have tried it!).
So anyway, what do you guys think? I kind of think it had an infection but everything will be fine but I might have to drink it fast once it is carbonates! If it grows scum in the bottles and that doesn't go away, I might start thinking about tossing it.
