Default First wild yeast starter.

Made my first wild yeast starter from grapes I had growing in my backyard. After 48 hours already have good sign of fermentation and it doesn't not smell bad.

Nice!

I would let it go for a while, or repitch it into hopped wort to reduce the bacteria count.

Any notes on attenuation? I have what I believe to be a brett ( Well, it looks like what most of the images of brett look like, under the scope), but it is a VERY slow fermenter and I dont think the attenuation will be very good.

Does this double negative mean that it smells bad?

Attenuation was good at 1.006. Taste was plain with a little hint of white wine but that could be from the grapes and smell had a slight latex aroma. I'm going to make a one gallon batch and some plate streaks and make a couple of one gallon batches from the streaks.
