I have the same thing going in my fermenter as we speak. I used WLP036, It appeared hours later after the pitch. I'm really not worried because I smelled the top of the airlock and it smells normal to me. I'll take a picture of it and post it.

I kept it about 70.

Hm. That could be the same. Basically, if you sprinkled something on top of the foam, it would stay there because it's so spongy and strong looking.

Yeah, with I moved my siphon that whole top layer it moved around as a whole. When I cleaned my carboy. It was like curdled milk when I poured it out.

Its yeast behavior... I can't say its typical because I've never observed that exactly but its definitely not bacterial. Something like that would take many weeks to develop if it was an infection.

Good info all, that picture is exactly what was on top of my sweet stout. I won't sweat it then, mine setup in 3 days after pitch.
