Smells gnarly like most early sour/funky stuff. There are tiny fermentation bubbles, so I'll let it ride and give 'er a taste at some point.

Black mold equals bad mood. You should skim?

It doesn't look like black mold to me, more just black scum from dark wort atop a cap of bread dough.

This is my most recent saison that is a blend of Dupont bottle yeast, WY3724, WY3726, WL565, WL Trois, and a strain of lacto I isolated out of another culture that is hop tolerant. Well I think it's a lacto strain. I didn't get this kind of pellicle on the first beer I had the contamination but maybe this is a mix of the brett and lacto making this pellicle.


Here is another saison I brewed back in August. I fermented it solely with lambic/gueuze bottle sediment I saved up from the last two years. I just did a direct pitch of maybe 2oz of thick resuspended slurry. There's the normal suspects in here. Cantillion, Lindeman's Cuvee Renee, some 3F, Hanssens, and anything else I felt fit the lambic/gueuze profile when I was drinking at home and had my mason jar handy.

Here is a couple of shots (sorry they are not the greatest only got my cell to take pics). This is the tart of darkness recipe but I pitched ECY20 bug county that has a whole lotta different critters in it. The first pic was 3 days after pitching and the next ones are a day or two after that. The last one is not even that close up.

Got a few more. The first is a hibiscus ginger saison with jolly pumpkin dregs. The second is a pale ale with Brett trois. The third is a golden with Brett c.

Damnit, guys. I've got 7 sour/funk beers going right now and NONE of them have had a pellicle worth showing so far (some are approaching a year old now). The closest one is just a thin white film. Oh well, the pellicle is just part of the fun - at least they're tasting great so far.

NB Grand Cru partial mash. After a year and a month this is what it looked like:



Pulling the lid off the fermenter was like pulling a saddle of a horse....awesome. Taste was light and lemony sour.
