The how F..... am I thread. Did a pumpkin wheat a few weeks ago (with canned pumpkin). Racked it and added cinnamon,all-spice, and nutmeg.(let it sit another 2wks)and was getting ready to bottle when I notice a white or opaque film starting to cover the top. Figured I would wait and ask you guys but now (in one night) it has gotten worse, completly covered on the top layer. So my friends how screwed am I? Best course of action?
Thanks for any help!

Like Always, I'm going to recommend that you rack CAREFULLY from under the FUNKY...and bottle. Taste it in a few (3 - 4) weeks and tell us it's fine.

Sounds like a small growth that might have came from the spices added after racking. Ive seen it before, and the beer turned out fine. Make sure you sanitize your spices. How? Steaming for 15 minutes, but you might lose flavor that way. Id nuke em.
