Emir: I do not think that would work. Pellicle growth is limited by the surface
area available. In tubers that is verly little  indeed.

I suspect vigourous  aeration of flask cultures on a shaker might produce
growth in suspended culture, but from what little I know of Acetobacter I
believe  it is biofilm growth and the metablic products produced  that is
usually of interest.
