this is my first lager beer, a pilsner. after bottling, i've got this strange white residue in all of my bottles. i bottled a pale ale the same day with the same equipment and there is no residue

is this lager specific? good or bad?

thanks

Can you see it in the brown bottles (I think I see brown bottles back there)?

When did you bottle?

Almost looks like a pelicle forming. Like you got some wild yeast in there but this usually takes some months to form. When did you bottle?

I don't know that fancy word, so I had to look it up (and you spelled it wrong ):

its my first lager brew. i used the california lager yeast because i can only keep the temperature 18-20c

it was in primary for 2 weeks and in secondary for close to 2 months, so i'm pretty sure fermentation was done.

i just bottled it last week. its been in the bottle about a week now

yes, i can see it in the brown bottles as well...
