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!

Should I rack off ale yeast?
I've been brewing for about 7 years or so and recently had my first unintentional infection, a pale ale brewed with English yeast. It formed a nice pellicle and looked like a potential brett infection. I decided instead of dumping I would start to feed it commercial sour dregs and ride it out. I've been doing this for about a month or so now. Should I rack off the ale yeast and continue to feed dregs? I'm unsure if I should disturb the pellicle or let it ride until it drops?

Re: Should I rack off ale yeast?
When are you planning to taste or package? There is likely no need to rack before then.

If it actually tastes good and the gravity is low, I would package immediately.

So, no need to wait for the pellicle to drop?
