pellicle identification
hi folks

Here are a couple of images. The first is a pedio only inoculation and the second is Brett-L. The second doesn't look like a pellicle to me. Can you guys help me out with an analysis? August 13 pitch date.

Third batch with Brett-L only. This is more like it. Not sure what's happening with the second photo.

The first appears to have alot of gas bubbles. Pediococci do not produce gas, so I would suspect something else got in there. I kinda looks like there's brett in there too.

I used the WY lambicus strain and I haven't had much of a pellicle in my 100% lambicus brews. Just my experience.

I have a couple beers with a pellicle resembling the first pic.... I think they got cross contaminated from my first bug blend bier via the wine thief (i wasn't really sweating about contamination - one is a wheat wine fermented with the berliner blend and the other is an all brett saison, both beers that couldn't hurt from some extra bretts).

Actually, I did add Brett-L to the first (pediococcus) keg also. It was just last week though. Pedio keg definitely smells of diacetyl, so hopefully the buggers are doing their thing.

You were smart to add Brett to the Pedio.
