Does this beer look spoiled. I moved it from the primary to a secondary and when I opened the primary there was a thick skin what was rubbery or plastic on top of the wort. A day after sitting in the secondary, the same type of stuff was on top of the wort

Well, cannot see the pic so cannot pursue the visual, did you taste it?
If not taste, how about smell?

Looks like foamy krauzen to me. Perfectly normal. And more than likely because you racked to secondary too soon, and it wasn't done fermenting yet, so the yeast is going back to work in secondary.

Is this the intended pic?

If so, it does not look rubbery to me it looks just like Revvy said!

Did the OP mean foam rubbery?

yes that is the pic. Had a hard time trying to get it posted. The foam itself was super rubbery.

Listen to Revvy...its krausen. Your beer is at peak fermentation...don't mess with it! Be patient.
