This is a unintentional infection I think. It was a pumpkin ale that I brewed a week ago.

hunterlab - DON'T DRINK IT! Don't even SAMPLE IT! You need to give me the batch, carboy and all as you should NEVER use the carboy or the equipment used for this batch again. I will take it all, and dispose of it in a safe and sanitary way. [Now all I need is a :burp icon.]

Sure thing copyright I'll get right on that ..... Not lol. I sampled it and taste good I wouldn't care if this had a pellicle or not as I plan on brewing a lambic soon so bring on the infection. I was just curious because out of all my other beers I've made this one the first one to have that bubbly film.

Hunterlab - I agree with the others, at least from the picture you posted it looks normal to me. I had that happen with the first beer I ever brewed - it's just a bunch of tiny CO2 bubbles. A real pellicle should "wrinkle" if you disturb the carboy.

I just had my first real pellicle form (inadvertently) on a fig beer I was brewing. It only appeared about a week after transfer to secondary. And I'm sure the culprit is the figs, which I tried sulfiting this time instead of pasteurizing. I'm not sure what it's going to turn out like, but I'm hoping it's good!

Btw, should I let this sit long enough for the pellicle to fall on its own before bottling? I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts. I don't want to try siphoning around the pellicle, at least not this early on, because I'm sure I'll end up with bottle bombs.
