Default Steak sauce smell from starter

I was just wondering if anyone else has had a smell of A1 steak sauce coming from a starter. Last time, I used a little of the old starter to innoculate a new starter. It didn't seem to make a krausen, but there were little bubbles coming through the liquid, so I took a smell. It was just like steak sauce. I threw it out since I figured steak sauce smells a little like vinegar, and vinegar means bacteria. The starter was extra stout wort. Anyway, just wondering.

To answer your question... No, hasn't happened too me, but these are some interesting answers. I'm an A-1 or H57 kind of guy... glad to know I'm not the only one that takes a "sample" now and again. I'm a big BBQ guy and know the nuances of many a sauce!

Schlante,
Phillip

Oh yea, wise choice on tossing it!

Have you ever tried A1 on cantaloupe? Wow, sweet & tangy perfection...goes great with some pork chops.
