Pellicle on Citrus Sour Blonde Ale. Primary was brett blend propagated from a bottle of RR Sanctification. After primary, added 12.2 oz (by weight) fresh tangerine and tangelo juice (as well as the zest). This appeared ~3 weeks later.

Full recipe and notes here

The pellicle on a peach sour I'm making before I racked it into a carboy.

Well I hope your turned out better than mine did! This was the first batch of beer I ever dumped. Smelled like 2 week old garbage, and tasted like puke.

Sorry... Like I said hopefully you will have better luck than I did.

This is my second sour stout attempt. My first one turned out great, but trying to cut back the sour edge to it a bit so the roast shines through a bit more. When I pitched the Cal Ale yeast I also dumped dregs from about 5 different sour beers. It's been in primary for about 2 months now. Think the yeast cake will just provide food for the bugs, or should I rack it off the yeast cake/maybe only key it sit for 6 months instead of a year?

This is just the start of the pellicle forming....



A little closer up...

Jim,
I would just leave it for a while longer. Pull it off after 6 months and put another on the yeast cake.

Just kegged 5 gallons of this Lambic after a year. I made 10 gallons total, and fermented each half in it's own fermentor. I'm saving the other 5 gallons for a geuze.

Love the picture, looks like you took it from inside the carboy! Did you have to shrink yourself down "Innerspace" style to get it?
