Ok guys a couple months back i made a Dude's SNCA clone (my first AG) and due to a a bunch of little crap comming up i just never got around to bottling. so i opened it up, Smell is great btw, but theres this white stuff just covering the top! Not just a little its like a blanket.

I really didnt have any problems with the brew, the only thing different was i used wyeasy 1083(i think), anyways yeast i never had used before. but anyways what is this?

Yuck. I've never seen that but I would be scared of going near it. I sure some one with a more sensible answer will be along soon.

You'll notice how everything spreads from that one fuzzball at the bottom of the picture. One cell started this. It could be a top fermenting yeast, but it could also be a nasty mold. Got a college with a bio dept. nearby?
