yeah, i thought the same thing when it popped up in iphoto. it came out better than i expected.

thanks for the input guys!
yeah you're going to want to wait and make sure the brett attenuates out fully before bottling.

It's possible to do it without capturing the pellicle forming critters but you didn't do anything wrong...it will just be sour & funky.

You have got to let it sit for a long time now, brett attenuates further than normal brewers yeast, and slower too.

Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'll let her sit for a while. I'm good to bottle once the pellicle is gone?

And to whomever asked, I did actually take that pic. It blew me away too when I loaded it on the computer. I thought man I know I was shooting in macro, but this is ridiculous! D'dunt-tssssssshhhh!

Just an FYI, a while means at least 6 months, I would wait at least 8 to sample. If not good, wait a few more months and sample again.

That looks amazing! Great idea to funk up a robust porter, too! Let us know how it goes!

I would let it sit 8 months before bottling. Brett will slowly keep feeding on the other bugs as they die off so it takes a long time for full attenuation. Besides the beer will need that long for the flavors to meld.

I bet it tastes awesome when it's a year grain to glass.

When you do bottle it, you should put that picture on the label!
