Disagree. I had a pellicle on a Berliner Weiss innoculated using yogurt, not grain.

I mashed as normal, raised it with a bit of boiling water to mash out, then let it cool to below 120F in my cooler with plastic wrap on the surface of the mash. Then added a tub of yogurt labelled with lactobacillus bulgaricus. It would drop to about 100F after 8 hrs then I'd add a little boiling water to raise it back up. After 3 days, I lautered and sparged and continued through a boil as a normal beer, except only 15min boil. The yogurt also had a streptococcus strain which added some ropey black culture in with the white webby lacto pellicle.

Have you tasted it yet Quaker? I regularly ferment pickles and peppers using the liquid from the top of greek yogurt and they all get powdery pellicles.

Powdery is a much, much better description. I made it back in May. The 4 plain bottles I kept of it were great. But I put the bulk of it on sour cherries for several weeks. The result of which didn't suit my tastes. I think the whole fruit added too much tannins to it. Once a gallon was gone from the keg, I topped it off with a 100% Brett L beer. It wasn't much better. I doubt I drank a gallon before I pulled it from the fridge. It's been sitting at room temp ever since. I haven't needed the keg, so it hasn't been dumped. I last tasted it on December 2nd. It might work well to blend with a sweeter brown or red ale base and immediately chill. That may happen or it may find the drain.

I forgot to mention the lacto was inadvertently carried over to the fermentation. I had done a short 15minute boil. I'm guessing I "contaminated" it with a spoon used to stir and aerate it. I fermented in my kettle. That's where the pellicle formed, not in the mash.

No clue. It was a leftover jar of wort that I added some sour dregs and a few grains to, then covered it with a cloth and left it alone for a couple weeks. Its thick like a moldy popover.
