got what looks like white mold on top of my saison, when I transfered to secondary a freakin gnat came out of nowhere and landed in my beer. used spoon and got him out (he died for that) but 2 days later i have a white film on top of my beer. can i rack off the bottom carefully the film does not cover the entire surface yet. or is the entire batch trash. this is the first infection i have had, so i need advice
thanks
ken

Don't worry about it. Almost all of my beer has a white film over it but it still tastes fine. Being in South Texas where the humidity is always high I believe mine is some sort of mold.
