This is the pellicle on my Oud Bruin at 2 months.

My latest wild innoculation (From the cellar), scotch ale base was at 8.24% when the pellicle formed, this one will be interesting as it's the first higher abv brew I've infected.

Was this an accidental inoculation or purposeful? Looks like a health strain whatever it is!

This one was purposeful, the initial fermentation didn't turn out as I wanted so I simply moved it to the cellar, removed the airlock and placed a piece of tinfoil over the neck, the pellicle formed after a couple of weeks. Initial ferment was with some juniper yeast (from jalapeno blonde ale) that I didn't wash thoroughly enough (residual jalapeno flavour).

Have I just joined this club? What does everyone recommend I do here? Lacto?

Its a big American Stout that has been in 2ndary for like 5-6 months, for various reasons including laziness and not wanting to waste a keg on a stout I wont be drinking in the summer anyway. Maybe I should siphon form under ther film and bottle? Ive not tasted it yet bc Im worried about contaminating my siphon.

My first. It wasn't intentional. It's Ó Flannagáin Standard Stout. Maybe it was meant to be. Brewed 4 weeks ago today.

Would this be a lacto? I've had a similar-looking pellicle on my batches using White Labs Irish Ale....it appeared on my Irish Blonde, Strawberry Blonde, and Irish Draught Ale.....still have a jar of the yeast in the fridge I'm keeping alive for a Dry Stout. The beer tastes fine (a little over-carbonated with larger than usual bubbles)....wondering if this might be from the yeast re-use and whether I should buy some acid to properly wash the yeast or should just buy a new tube....

This is growing on my sour blend. Combination of various bottle dregs and roeselare. Its either 6 or 7 months old now. Condensation makes it hard to get a good picture. Do they normally start out from the side like that or should I be worried about it?

Should I move this fermenter to a different room? It happens to be stored in the same small room as my mash tun siphon, siphon tubing etc.

I really dont want to have to replace all my equipment.

Great question - I only have one air conditioned closet for a storage room, transfer room, fermentation chamber, bottle aging room, and ingredient storage......if carboys are kept properly capped/airlocked, how likely ARE these extra bugs to migrate?
