I had a beer that had crap on top that looked similarto that minus the zits. I skimmed the top and bottled it. What doesnt kill you makes you stronger!

I would hate to waste the effort if it tastes bad. Skim it, try it and do not bottle or keg unless it tastes good.

Oh...now...it's not going to have any potential till it's carbed, and been in the fridge for a few days.

Don't be a wuss...bottle, carb, and get on with it for crying out loud.

Alright, the tasting is complete.

I first sterilized my wine thief, LOL.

I poked at a bubble just to see what would happen. It sort of ripped open and collapsed. Yummy stuff.

I grabbed a sample and put it in a glass, but there was so much of the film stuff along that I couldn't even try to get a clean shot at the beer beneath. I played around with the wine thief until I had a clean hole through the film and got a decent sample.

The beer was fine, other than it tastes as bad as ever. I think the recipe was a dud or I screwed it up, which is possible since it was one of my very first AG batches. No off flavors other than a distinct alcohol burn. No off scents.

The film is sort of like a plastic that comes apart into tiny little pieces. I'm wondering if it is maybe something to do with the vanilla. I don't know, but it doesn't seem to hurt anything.

Bottom line, don't dump beer that looks like that.
