Today I noticed a thin, sticky-looking, white film on the surface of my mead. I've been reading threads and looking at pics trying to decide if I have a problem or not. I keep flip-flopping between "I think that's normal" and "oh crap I'm breeding bugs" so I thought I'd ask for some more experienced opinions
Its a straight up OB mead with no fruit or other additions and has been in secondary for 15 days. I have way more air space than I should have but it seemed to still be fermenting pretty vigorously when I racked it and I hoped it would produce enough CO2 to protect it. I'm planning on topping up at the next racking. Here's how it looks:
