I gave you a poison vote since you seemed to want one, and let's be honest - if you drink enough of it fast enough, then it is.

Well, it's time for bottling...

I drew a cup, and drank it, a bit hesitantly. It tastes substantially better than it did after my first round of tasting. It's actually something I wouldn't mind drinking.

However, there is a thin (greasy?) film on the top, along with some bits of something growing. From what I've read here, I'm assuming this is just a byproduct of the wild yeast, but if anyone wants to give me any warnings based on the attached picture, now is the time.

Well, I did some reading, and it looks like I've probably got a Brett. Not previously familiar with such a strain, but it doesn't seem to have negatively impacted the taste.
I mixed it with about half a cup of brown sugar (as you may have noticed, I'm not being overly exacting in my process for this batch), and bottled it.
Should I expect that I'll get some of this film in each bottle?
