Default No pellicule

2 months ago I pitch a vial of WL Belgian Sour mix 1 into a 1060 wort (50 pils 30 raw wheat 20 malted wheat), it fermented vigourously for a week or two, then it continues to bubble really slowly, a bubble every few minutes, but there's no pellicule. I was wondering if it was normal or not at this stage?

I took a small sample to taste... there's a brett caracter but not really acidity or sourness yet.

Thanks!

Its normal..

the mad fermentationist has this to say

"A pellicle is a sign that there is oxygen in the head-space more than anything else. I have had fantastically sour/funky beers that never grew more than a light skin, and terrible beers that grew huge pellicles because too much oxygen was getting in. In general it is not something I would worry about too much either way (unless you are trying to brew a clean beer)."
