First pic is what this wild yeast (harvested from wine grapes) did when I left some of it sitting in a pint glass open to the air for a few weeks.
2nd and 3rd are pics of the pellicle that's just formed when i woke it up from a long lonely nap.

I'm glad that flask says 'Feral' and not 'Fecal' as I originally read it.

Fantastic. I am looking at a barrel but didn't want to commit if I didn't know what was going on. Cheers!

Just make sure to look into which kind of hibiscus you use. I've heard the white ones are poisonous but I know for a fact the red ones are ok.

They sell dried flowers at a Mexican market nearby, red ones. I had figured on using those. Good to know about the white ones though. Maybe I'll do a case of some really wild wild using morning glory seeds in the secondary.

Morning glory seeds are great (Hawaiian baby woodrose is even better) if you don't mind projectile vomiting!

Just careful with the morning glory seeds lol. I had a summer where I was interested in different states of consciousness and perception of reality in these different states of mind. To sum it up simpler, me and a few friends did a lot of researching and experimented the different effects of different hallucinogens.... Morning glory being one of them. Morning glory seeds contain LSA, a chemical very similar to LSD, and have been used as far back in time as the ancient Mayans(they called it tlitlitzin) for their psychoactive properties. Depending on potency of the seeds as little as 25 seeds can be a dose with effects lasting 6-10 hours. Check out Erowid.org for more info as there are also health risks of ingesting morning glory seeds. Especially for those taking certain types of anti depressant medications.
