A bit OT, so I'm kind of new of sours but I have one in my closet that has been there for about 16 months. Am I supposed to wait til the pellicle drops to bottle it?

I was going to punch through the pellicle to rack it to the bottling bucket but if it falls, then even better (but that means I'll have to wait until it falls, who knows how long that'll be).

Wait till the pellicle drops, you don't want to disturb a fermenting beer. It would be like racking a normal saccharomyces cerevisiae beer off primary before its done. What temp is it sitting at.

Very cool. I am currently fermenting a beer with Brett Brux, it's my first. I added the Brett a week ago and there is already a good pellicle. I added one vial of White Labs Brett Brux.
