Brett Pellicle - Do I wait for it to 'fall'
Novice brett beer question here. I pitched a white labs brett brux vial into the secondary of my RIS (FG 1.040)to give the beer a bit of funk and help lower the gravity. Its been in the secondary now for 3mo at 60-62degrees, and there is still a nice pellicle. I haven't taken any gravity readings nor racked the beer for fear of breaking the pellicle. I was under the impression that I should wait for it to 'fall' before I rack to the keg. So, my question is...what's my next step? Take a gravity reading/taste? Wait until the pellicle disappears? Thanks.

I'd take gravity readings once every month or 2 until you hit a stable FG, then rack it. Don't be afraid to take samples. If the brett wants more pellicle where you punctured it, it will just grow more pellicle.

It may never fall, just rack when the taste suits you.
