If you have that on top I would be concerned, thats a picture of my lambic mead, in which case it good to see. On a normal mead I would be saddened by its presence.

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.

Yea it looks exactly like that. It's an infection I've been fighting on my beers ever since I moved into that crapass apartment, glad I'm moving soon.

Update since I first posted. I racked from well under the floating buttons to two one gallon containers. On the recommendation of my LHBS, I left little headroom and repitched with RED STAR MONTRACHET yeast and FERMAID K. The ensuing vigorous ferment glubbed up the airlocks (which I replaced with a clean-one 3 times) but insured a blanket of CO2. They're still going and no moldies detected.

One of the things I learned in the process are that yeast for Mead must have a nutrient cocktail from the start to get things 'rolling'.

I'm already planning my strategy for another batch next month.
