It's a weird looking pellicle but yes, thanks for the pretty comment lol . It's "dusty", the pic doesn't really highlight that really well, but it formed on top of a thick stuck around krausen. It is bubbles, not cherries; is that normal? The bubbles have a dusty film over them.

Funked scotch ale with White labs sour blend


Dark strong with East Coast yeast Flemish


berliner


I also have 2 blonds going with east coast brett blends #9 and #1. 3 gal of RIS with bugfarm and cherries added. Then a golden strong with bugfarm in a rum barrel. I just added a bunch of cherry puree to the dark strong and its going like crazy again.
None of my sours seem to get too crazy of a pellicle. Oh I have a brett saison, cranberry lambic, orange wheat with lacto and a blond with brett and lacto, all of them bottled and are getting better.

Me too, my sours don't really develop impressive pellicles... although that's probably actually a good indication.

Thanks James, I brewed this about a month ago, whenever the pellicle falls! I'm guessing I'll bottle this in 5 more months, maybe 4. It'll definitely be putting this into bottles so portability will be good!

Is that a wood dowel in your stopper?

Yes. People buy oak dowels and toast them and put them into the stopper for sours, especially Flanders Ales, in order to emulate the micro-oxygenation you'd get from a large wooden barrel - imparting an oak flavor is sometimes a secondary purpose, as it seems to be in his case since he's made it long enough to be submerged.

I just got some dowels, I should toast them first?

Edit: nevermind, simple search and found a thread on it.

A little bit of Raspberry Kentucky Common. I thought this was going to be soured just in the mash, but it looks like a little lacto snuck through.
