I posted on this beer before, (post#509). Take a look at how much it's changed...I've really enjoyed watching the pellicle do its thing.

Brewed on 5/20/12:

Is there any way to tell what I've got here? This is unintentional after my second dry hop. Must have come off the hops as my bag was dipped in starsan for a good half minute before adding. It tastes good, a little sour, not too much. I ended up kegging it because we're moving and our kegerator was almost empty. It's an IPA and the film, pellicle, whatever it is was between 3 and 9 days old.

That looks like yeast rafts, krausen remnants, and hop oils, i.e. not an infection.

Just so I can learn from my betters: You don't think the white-ish film in combination with the slightly sour taste that the poster indicates a lacto infection?

All the photos that I've seen in this thread, along with the sour beers I've made, have indicated that, roughly, a bubbly, fuzzy film indicate Brett and a stringy film indicates lacto. I can't really say regarding the sour taste, although I've gotten some weird flavors out of beers that are still in the carboy. But the photo, at least, doesn't look like an infection; I've had a lot of saccharomyces fermentations that looked exactly like that.

The sour taste is oftentimes imparted from lots of dry hops. I would take a long time for a beer to sour from something like that. I does look like an infection to me with the cloudy bubbles, but I think if you got it into a keg you'll be fine. Just make sure to drink it up.

Hops are also antibacterial. That is why they were originally added to beer...as a preservative. It is pretty doubtful something was living in the hops to infect the beer.
