Show us your pellicle
« on: January 20, 2011, 01:59:22 PM »


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.
