Well im not sure what it is but there are like 3 1/2" spots that look like mold in the secondary. The beer is a honey brown that i haven't had the time to keg. Its been it the secondary for about 6 moths with an airlock on it. Any ideas? Thanks

Whats the ABV i'd say. 6 months aging should be safe for 7%- 8% beers and up.

Not the best picture but there is one right under the bubble on the top left and one on the right side. Basically the 2 white spots. They almost look like small balls of cotton.

If it tastes ok, I'd rack from the middle. Do you bottle or keg? I've kegged a suspect batch with no issues.
