Did you boil? How'd that happen? (I'm sure you've thought about this!)

Yep, did boil this baby. There wasn't really any pellicle during primary, so I think it must have snuck back into the wort from infected gear when racking onto the raspberries. Not that I'm complaining

A Belgian Pale Ale that got a healthy dose of bugs and oak from a funky/sour jar'o'dregs.

This was just an experiment to see how souring works and to play with sour mashing/grain inoculation. It started out as spent grains in second runnings from a batch I brewed on March 25 of this year. Then, on April 5, I strained out the grains and added some DME wort (1.028ish) and Cuvée René dregs. Finally, on April 20, I blended in a half-gallon of a pineapple braggoty thing that was just finishing up a month in primary, which was fermenting using second-generation WLP575 (a blend, which had undoubtedly long-since lost its original ratio by this time).

EDIT: Just realized I had already posted a couple pictures of the original pellicle back in April in this very thread. Sorry for the double explanation for the same experiment! :-) (end EDIT)


Which brings us to today, August 3, when this picture was taken of the pellicle (click for full resolution):

Having a hard time not classifying this ad mold. This is a side angle pic and cherries are still floating. The batch is about 8 months old.

It's not mold, I don't think, unless that greenish tint I see is actually present.

how did it start? mold grows funny on a liquid surface. i've noticed on a few of my weird experiments that mold will almost always start on the rim or on top of something dry.
