I cleansed the sourdough w/ H2O, but...

I cleansed the sourdough w/ H2O, and worked great!  The only thing that is still funny about it, is that a slightly crusty layer forms over the top, after it has risen.  That never happened before the " violation" of the dough... Is the dough still trying to push out the bacteria?
