Not the best quality photo, it is hard to get a good one with all of the krausen stuck to the carboy. My first attempt at a lambic, now 2 months old with wyeast lambic blend, cantillon rose de gambrinus and tilquin dregs. This just popped up in the last week or so.

It got racked into an open bucket then back into the carboy after I cleaned the oak out. I'm thinking that was probably adequate O2 exposure, but just to be safe... maybe I'll pull the airlock for a couple hours tonight

You don't need or necessarily want a pellicle.

True, I wouldn't go about trying to make one. But they sure are great to stare at!

Drink a sour, toss the bottom of it in some low grav wort, shake periodically, and you'll have a new friend in no time.

Or just leave a glass of beer out in your garage for a week or two...

I was freaking out until I started looking at these photos. Guess mine is doing good, just never had it look like this.

Looks like something under I microscope. Didn't even zoom.
