I've got some larger pellicle bubbles forming on the surface now. Kinda wish I would have used Brett L instead or something a bit funkier.its slightly bretty right now. It currently has 2 la Roja dregs and a oro de calabaza dreg. I added the oak over a week ago, I feel it's over Oaked now though. It seems like that's all I taste. Hopefully it'll fade over the next few months.

So this beer is almost 5 months now. It's very sour. I'm really digging the flavor. The oak came out good. Should I let it ride out or is there any reason I couldn't keg it now?

If it tastes the way you like it and you're kegging I don't see a problem

When you rack into your keg, its gonna ferment a little more again. Most commercially available strains of Brett kick back into activity when transferred. This coming from both gave fletcher and chad Yakobson.

I was looking to transfer to an empty keg. I currently only have 2 and both are full once again. I decided to transfer my cider instead of this. I might transfer this to a 5 gallon fermentor and make a third sour. I made a 10 gallon batch two Saturdays ago and decided to sour half of it.

Still havnt kegging yet. Flavors are a slight sour cherry flavor. It is starting to take on a bit of an apple flavor which bothers me a bit. The pellicle is very light now. Think it's safe to keg then bottle?
