I just started my first batch of mead (JAOM-like) two weeks ago. I just checked on it earlier today and some of the raspberries floating on the surface appear to have clumps of mold on top. Everything smells great, with no rotten smells or anything so I don't plan on dumping it... I was just wondering if it was normal to get some molds on the surface, or if I should look into it more. There never was a huge start to the fermentation; its just been slowly bubbling ever since it started four or five hours after I pitched the yeast.
