I let my pumpkin ale ferment for about 7 months and now I just popped the lid on it and I have this clump of what looks like mold growing on the top! I really hope it's not lost, it smells wonderful! Any ideas?

I've never seen anything quite like that. It's clearly a pellicle of some origin, but the fact that it doesn't encompass the entire surface area makes it "different".

If it tastes ok and you can rack out from under that "thing", go for it...

Cheers!

I didn't taste it...I'll let it cold crash for a couple days first. I've never had a beer do this in 7 years of brewing. Its a bigger beer, about 8% abv. I'll let ya guys know!

Tasted tonight. Learn something new all the time. It's fantastic. Better than I expected in the first place. Thanks for the input.
