Wild bugs moved in. Not sure what it is. The beer is an experimental low grav. rye gruit from 2nd runnings. Tastes unlike any beer I've ever had; likely because there are no hops. Sharp, lingering tartness.

Lacto?

Any guess on which bugs can produce a pellicle like this? It has formed on the surface of hopped wort exposed to night air and has a powdery consistency.

Maybe not, but the comments are a good indicator that you can't judge a bug by it's pellicle. I do agree with you for once. Looks like cheese to me, too.

I liked my mental image of your autocorrected pelican better.

Can anyone help identify this?

Also, a question: This was unintended. I did not notice a pellicle in the primary, only in the secondary as shown. It has been there about a week. Final gravity when I racked it was 1.010 on an ordinary bitter, so this isn't a high alcohol brew. When would it be safe to bottle? Is it worth keeping? I've never made a sour on purpose, but I do enjoy some sour beers.
