pellicle on fruit?
Can a pellicle form on the top surface of fruit after a secondary fermentation? I have a 100% brett L. and C. beer that was racked onto sour cherries and oak. I did my best to purge the carboy after adding the fruit. The beer is about 2 mos and I would like to age it at least 3. I am starting to see some tiny white colonies forming on top of the cherries and wondering if that is a sign of mold or pellicle(brett colonies)formation. Thinking it probably is brett, but what do you all think?

Oh yeah.

Most likely brett, not mold.

I have a blueberry pLambic that has a 1/4" thick pellicle all the way across the top of the blueberries.

How long do you plan on leaving the lambic on the fruit for (total time)?

Yeah, it's been on there the whole time. About a year now.
