2 months after brew day, the imperial brett saison was down to 1.010. Went ahead and bottled

berries, bitter or...

Came home from a trip, and found quite the pellicle on top. Has anyone else experienced this in

The beer went down another 12 points 10 days since my first post (at 1.038 now) - about 3.5
weeks post brew day at this point (went ahead and stirred some yeast back into solution, since
