I wouldn't. I think it's unnecessary and probably detrimental to the flavor unless you are racking the beer frequently. Then I would probably say racking it that much is unnecessary.

Take a look at this monster! I've never seen something grow on top of the krausen before. Looks like lacto bubbles, though possibly mold too...

Looks fine. Pellicles sometimes get a real dry or powdery texture.

Accidental infection in a post-fermented cider... not sure what the bug is yet.
Doesn't taste vinegary or sour yet, if anything more mellow and smooth than before!

WLP Belgian Sour Mix 1 with dregs from Jolly Pumpkin BamBier, Bruery Saison de Lente, Orval, Odell Friek, and Flemish Premitive. Little over 2 months since brewing. I racked it to secondary with chardonnay soaked french oak cubes and some additional chardonnay. Within the past day these beautiful bubbles have started popping up. Is this the beginning of a pellicle or something else?
