Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

pellicle has dropped
Well My 6gals. of Belgian Blonde that I infected with a few bottles of Russian Rivers Temptation has had the pellicle drop. So I tasted it tonight, it is only 3 months old and very nice. The aromas I get off of it are just like a bottle of temptation and I'm very happy about that. The taste is also very nice.

So now that the Pellicle has dropped Should I bottle it or is it ok to wait a few more weeks, months. Or will it oxidize now that the Pellicle was dropped??

Re: pellicle has dropped
three months might be a bit quick. If you can take a gravity reading with out infecting other gear. and the FG is low enough. I spose you could bottle. Vinnie once recomended via email 6 months+ for full developement of flavors.

Where there any vibrations that could have encouraged the dropping of the pellicle prematurely?

The Belgian Blonde is in a bucket, I also have another beer in a glass carboy that still has the pellicle. But it is a diffrent beer but they are only a week apart in age. So I don't think any Vibrations did it.
