My Number 8 Clone from NB. Not sure if it was supposed to get an infection, but I am not sad.

I bet it will be awesome. I love looking at sour beers in their wild state. Occasionally, I'll see a beer that I can't figure out what is going on.

Looks like a brett pellicle to me, but I wouldn't dump it. Have you smelled / tasted a sample?

Let it ride!!

so I have a batch that looks just the same.

Extract brew with added steeped malt. In the primary for 2 weeks. I opened it 7 days ago, added a sterilised hop bag to dry hop. I figured it was time to bottle today, opened it & it has this same bubbly white skin , I assume its Brent Pellicle.

In this thread most seem to say leave it - I assume this means leave in the primary for longer? When should I bottle it?

I am envisaging a major dose of bleach in the fermenter before the next batch...

OK, so I was out in Seattle earlier this year (July) and among the beers I tried at the Tap House Grill (160 on tap!), I had a Lips of Faith/ Lost Abbey Brett. It was quite nice. Is there a Brett beer for dummies guide so I can brew something like this (or even better)? Do I need to dedicate equipment to it? I've done 30+ all grain batches, so just a general pointer is probably enough....

Best book on brewing sours by far:

In short, you can definitely do it. You don't NEED dedicated equipment, but having an extra set of plastics certainly makes things easier.
