Yes, I see pellicles like that occasionally, only ever in places where they don't belong. The couple times I've sampled/packaged, I haven't noticed a problem. I usually dump though - I often see this sort of thing in harvested jars of yeast next to my sourdough starter. Now I'm more of a segregationist.Like the above photo, I only have ever seen this spaghetti-like pattern of pellicle on fermentation with wild microbes. Does this match everyone else's observations?
Yup, pellicles! I wouldn't say they're just getting started; they look pretty extensive to me.These are my first two aged sour beers, and I'm 99% sure both are pellicles. One is bubbly, whereas the other is flat. Both look like they are just getting started. I was hoping for a confirmation from some of the more experienced sour beer brewers on this forum.
