I'm proud to be able to add my first pellicle to the photo collection. It's a 1868 Porter recipe aged with some oak cubes and brett C. It's not as cool as some of the pic's here, but I'm just happy to be a part of the funky fun.

This a story how to make a bad situation a good one. Lol

It started out when I was trying to get a starter made with dregs from a local brewery. I followed everything in the do it yourself on this form. After a week I didn't notice anything, after two weeks a notice a film and a sourness to the starter. I got wild yeast and lacto I guess. I was disappointed it didn't go the way I wanted but I wanted to do a sour so I bottled my saison Sunday and took off a gal of it and added the starter.

My first sour that I'm winging it at the moment to see how it turns out. Lesson learned.. to make a mistake into a tasty beer hope it turns out awesome!

Left an OG reading in the measurement glass to see what would happen/what I got in my aparment.

2 day lag time before this happened. Sorry about the swedish, can't find the original picture

A week later i took off the foil and the day after this appeared, the pellice got a bit disturbed when I moved the glass.

Poured out the sample afterwards, but got me thinking about doing a spontaneous fermentation of a real batch.

Sweet tiny pellicle! And thanks for the Swedish Lesson, I moved away from there when I was very young so I can only speak well enough to hold a conversation but as far as any words that are not in everyday vocabulary... I know nothing. Now I am starting to expand my swedish brewing vocabulary!

I had to move this fermenter a few times unfortunately (may have to move it again, one last time). Imperial Chocolate Raspberry Stout with Lacto/Pedio/Brett L and WLP002.

My oud bruin at 2 months. It's infected with the dregs from a Russian River Supplication.

I've done about 20 batches, first time seeing this. Is it pecllicle (looks almost like mold). If so, what should I do with it (it was going to be a LakeFront IPA), and how should I proceed with the equipment used to brew it? Interestingly enough, I did two batches that day and they are side-by-side in my fermentation chamber. The first one appears normal (it's a Squeeze My Lemon Ale), and both have been in the primary for 2+ weeks.

Results from my first lacto starter. As you can see 1 has a 1 1/2" thick nice white powdery pelicle. The other one nothing but bubbles as if it's fermenting. The 3rd smelled so terrible I threw my growler and all away.
