Is this a sign of Brett or lacto taking hold? Should I just let it ride for a few month's after the fruit drops before deciding to bottle? About half of the fruit hasn't dropped out yet, so the pellicle is just sitting on top of it.
Hey, I recognize this beer
Not sure I have any insight as to what may have caused the pellicle, but as long as it isn't mold I'd be in favor of letting it ride. And hopefully I'll get to taste it in a few months.
