Yeah, that does look like a pellicle to me, as well.

Also, do you cook with cast iron? I've read it can increase dietary iron quite a bit (a good

If I were you, I'd try brewing a really simple SMaSH, something like 10 lbs of Maris Otter,
with an oz. of Cascade at 60, another oz at 15, and 2 oz at flameout. Pitch a very clean yeast

Haha. That was pretty good, although more a spoof on clickbait journalism than anyone in
