You barely pitched 655 2 weeks ago and it already looks like this? Man, that's nuts! I pitched a vial into my Flanders Red a month ago and there's absolutely no sign of a pellicle yet. What are you fermenting in? I've got mine in a well sealed glass carboy.

My undefined and unintentional pellicle.

Anyone have an idea what this could be? Better question, what the heck should I do with it? Please see my thread here for more details.

I have mine in a fermenting bucket from More Beer. They let more oxygen in. I'd try popping the top and putting a sanitized rag over the top for a day or two.

Mine was showing signs after two days, but the gravity didn't change at all. That's why I pitched the Nottingham.

What were you making? My first 'sour' was from lemon peel. It was an accident and turned out awesome. How long has it been fermenting?

It was a basic Apline Spring Clone. Pretty normal grain bill / hops, just used a Kolsch yeast at a higher than normal temprature... The full recipe is in my thread linked above.

I'd ride it out. I wouldn't bottle it until it dropped to at lease 1.008, or you might have some bombs.

If you don't want to wait and see, you could try speaking some out and force carving it. See if you like it. The grain bill isn't that far off from mine. I'm planning on putting a few pounds of black currants and oak in the secondary. That will be in about 4 months, then in two more it'll be exactly what I want. The other half won't go into secondary for at least a year.

If you don't mind the wait, you might have a very nice surprise on your hands. If I were you, I'd save the yeast when you're done just in case you really like the way it came out. My sour lemon one, the only way I can get it exactly the same is by using the old yeast, which I've been using for about two years now. I have no clue what it is or where it came from, but my sour lemon rye is my favorite brew to date. Not sweet at all, but it has that sour in your jaw feeling like eating sour candy and lemon heads at the same time.

And, the more I use the old yeasts s buds, wash them, feed them, split them up and reuse them, the faster I get the desired flavor. I'm actually down to two months in the primary then a week in the keg.

Any ideas on this one? Was a simple simcoe ipa.

I've read a pellicle isn't really necessary, so I'll keep it sealed for now.
