That's definitely a pellicle, could well be from Lacto. That means it will sour over time. A
hint of tartness is not necessarily bad with a Dunkel but it will get worse, so in that light,

a Dunkelweizen. Wyeast 3068. Very aggressive fermentation which is to be expected by this
yeast. 1L starter. Smelled fine while fermenting. 2 months later I open up the fermenter to
find this. I've ...
