Had some small white spot appear at the top of my carboy. Mold? Perhaps simply yeast?

I will be seriously bummed if 5 gallons (that's how much I have is ruined)

Honestly, it looks like clumps of yeast that didn't get mixed down into the must. But if they "formed" instead of being there from the beginning...it could be mold. Hard to tell from the photo.

If you think it's mold, rack it off to another carboy and see what you end up with. I wouldn't dump it without knowing 100%.
