I have a sour Brett pumpkin in secondary right now and it usually has a strong pellicle. today there is no pellicle. If I open it for a few minutes to taste/check gravity the pellicle forms for the next few days then disappears. The pellicle is a reaction to oxygen so if it goes away that just means there is no more oxygen in the headspace. Bottle when a stable gravity happens, or under prime it.

This pellicle has gone through about 4 or 5 different iterations in the past few months

That's a beautiful color on top.. what's in there? Do you let any oxygen in with the glass? That's gorgeous!!
Edit: I ask that cause I'm using my glass now cause all my BB's are full and not getting as much of a pellicle on those..

It's a Belgian Golden Strong Ale with mango and Brett B, based on this recipe: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/drunk-owl-mango-55227/

This one didn't form a pellicle of any sort for a few months. It's definitely got a bit more head space than I'd normally allow (although the photo is a bit deceiving), but I've only popped the airlock once for a gravity check in the year it has been sitting.

I used dregs from 4 bottles of fresh Bam straight into primary. I was expecting a long lag time, but it was roaring in under 48.

Yeah it was a fun (and expensive) day of brewing + drinking Bam. Fortunately, it's a low ABV brew and is highly drinkable from lunchtime, straight through to dinner!
