This is a beer that stopped fermenting with ale yeast at about 1.032, so I decided to add Brett Brux to it.  The pellicle developed within a couple weeks and looks really thick now.  Smells great too.

Lambic, shortly after innoculation following primary ferment with an ale yeast (two middle carboys, early 2010). The neighbors to the right (with brown rings and just peeking in the back) are from 2008; the Stainless steel pin to the left is lambic from 2007. All three to be blended into a gueuze. All told 25 gallons, ready to blend now.

I like sour!

Wish I had some pellicle pics to share.  Those pics are awesome!  Reminds me, kind of, of the mold that forms on top of cabbage when my parents would make sourkraut.  Makes me want to drink a lambic!

the surface and clinging up onto the wood near the bung...

I think the brown pellicle is on the endangered list.

Unintentional pellicle on dry stout. Turned out okay.

Until I took a dip with the wine thief, there was Not a pellicle. I let in Oxygen and got this... :P
Taste was pretty funky!

I feel weird in saying this, but that is absolutely beautiful!  Reminds me of those cool "nature" pics series you see online...

Yep, beautiful indeed. And it turned out to be a beautiful raspberry lambic vinegar  :P

Vinegar - what a bummer. Maybe it can be used as a window cleaner.... or as a base for some great salad dressing.

Well over a year has passed and the warning comes up over 120 days...yeah I know...here is that beer today
as it was tapped from the keg...the flavor is kind of like Pears..some barnyard hay..but with a sour flat thing on the tougue...there is little head and it comes across flat ....maybe I can pick up some foam in the kegerator but i am thinking this one is sans head with a little short lived lace ....Pure lambic+no fruit is kind of good in it's own way.

FUNKEEEE

WLP648 Brett Bruxellensis Troi Vrai
After fermenting an IIPA from 1.090 to 1.010
Still not sure if it's Brett Pellicle or demonic posession
