Agreed. It can form a "raft" of dead mold and try to expand from that, though but I think it's usually starting on some little bit of floating matter, like a stray bit of hops or something.

finally got one. infected starter.

here's me: i'm not gonna bother flaming the lip of this bottle, it'll be fine. dumb.

it started with a thin brett/lacto looking bubble film, then a solid krausen formed under that overnight. sorry for the crappy lighting, but here it is:

This pellicle is three months old. I pitched White Labs Belgian sour mix, and some Jolly Pumpkin and Russian River dregs into Jamil's Flander's Red recipe. After taking this picture, I added 1 lb of black currants and some oak cubes that have been soaking in cabernet savignon for about 2 months then racked it into a glass carboy.



This one is about 7 months old. This was my last extract recipe, but my first full 5.5 gallon batch. I pitched Cal Ale yeast into it, and waited until fermentation started to slow down a bit. I then racked it to secondary, added an ounce of oak cubes and pitched Wyeast's Roselare into it. It's not really sour at all yet. I just pitched some Red Currants into it, and I'm going to let it sit for even longer. I'm thinking around Easter sometime? We'll see.

I made this one by washing yeast in a previous grain container. Apparently I didn't sterilize it enough.

7 month pellicle, droidx providing the lighting via the flashlight app
The condensation kind of ruins this shot for me, but I love how the brew glows against the warning on the bucket and the pellicle lit up.
