Default Bottled Sour Brown

I bottled a sour brown I brewed in march '09. Being my first sour experiment, I didn't think to add yeast at bottling. I'm not concerned about it taking a long time to carb up, but will it carb? It was pitched with wyeast roselare when it hit 1.030. I bottled this 2 wks ago and I did notice little pellicle's forming in the bottles the other day. How long should I let it be before trying one?

It should carb up eventually, especially since you see some activity in the bottle. I'd give it ~2 months beofre trying it, but my sours often take 6 months in the bottle for the flavor to really come around (even when I pitch yeast at bottling).

You might get things going better if you brought them up to mid 70s for a couple of weeks. Sounds like you'll be fine.
