those last shots are amazing! this is my funky graff (brown ale+apple cider) made with the wyeast trappist blend (orval--so the pellicle is bret brux) after two months, just before bottling.

The is a pellicle from lactobacillus. I pitched a low gravity wort onto a yeast cake from a previous berliner weisse batch.

One of the few times you crack the lid and become happy to see your pellicle is forming nicely.

UPDATE: Just two days later the pellicle formed into this:

So awesome!

About a month ago I let some starter wort cool in my cellar over night. I've stepped it up twice and this pellicle formed over the past three days.

Any idea what this is...brett, lacto?

Great thread!!!!!!!!!!!

Wish I'd found this back around last summer when I had a little something happening to an ESB.





Probably absolute sacrilege but I dumped the batch as the thought of having to chuck my autosyphon and tubing, bottling bucket, bottling wand, plus anything else that came in touch with the brew, was a bit discouraging. Have to say, though, that the sample I drank, a few days after these photos were taken, tasted bloody good actually so I didn't enjoy dumping it.

Especially since you wouldn't had had to dispose of all that equipment. I use the same equipment for both sour beers and regular, and all I do is give it a hot soak in strong bleach water, then a soak in Starsan. Haven't had one problem yet.

Regrettably, I only realised that soon after dumping. Was, mistakenly, under the impression that it was chuck the stuff or use only for doing infected/cultured batches.

Yes. I added Brett L to one fermentor, Brett B to the other.
