My last 2 batches had something weird. The first one was a DragonMead (found the recipe somewhere in HBT) and after transfering to secondary, it started to have a white thin film floating on top. It was breakable, and reminded me of the salt thing that floats on pickled olives or dills.
I bottled it anyway about 3-4 weeks ago, and I see that same film floating on top of the bottles.
Should I drink it or not? If I do drink it, should I "filter" out the things that float first?
Same with my other beer that started to have things that float on top. The floaters don't cover the complete surface in my bucket, and I am only looking through the semi-transparent lid of the bucket because I am not ready to do anything yet with it (either keg it, bottle it, or just pour it in the drain). What do you guys suggest? Should I syphon the bottom part to bottle/keg it, leaving the top there and pour it out the drain? Or, probably extremen, but is there danger I get poisoned if I drink it?
Thanks for the help/suggestions!
