I suppose it could be "a sign" of the Brett metabolizing stuff, but it's not a requirement for that.

If the beer tastes good though, and you don't want it to change, go for the kegging! It is...

Yep, and in addition to that a pellicle is a bad indicator of just about anything other than there might be a significant amount of air getting in your fermenter. It does help to protect over...

The Brett will convert the sugars too, it just sometimes takes a longer time to get started than Sacch does (this might be strain dependent). If you don't get any activity after 7 days, then you can...

The Sacch is dead, but the Brett isn't. I'd bet money on a visible Brett fermentation happening between 4 and 7 days. :)

There's probably something left alive, but I wouldn't rely on it alone to create the sour funky flavors you are probably after. I would pitch it along with a fresh blend, or maybe with dregs into a...

Airlock would be best. With a loose seal, the air will get inside and the gasses will mix.

I don't have any experience with partigyle, but I think the answer lies in what results you get from creating the wort for the table beer. I would imagine that you would get a lot less dark roasted...

Well, it doesn't look like mold. Generally when I've added fruit to a beer in the fermenter, it re-ferments the sugars from the fruit. I would guess that is what is fermenting the fruit, but I...

If you bottle, I would recommend re-yeasting to be 100% sure it will carbonate. I've bottled sour beers that had fresh yeast added 3 months prior to bottling, and they never did carbonate (perhaps...
