Infected Yeast???
1 Attachment(s)

So last night I made a couple starters from two jars of washed yeast that I've had in my fridge for about 6 months. I was planning on brewing a few times over the 4th of July weekend since I haven't been able to brew in a long time (hence the 6 month old yeast). Both jars looked fine this morning, but when I got home from work one of them had small spots all over the top of it. I smelled both starters and they smell the same. Should I just assume that the one with the spots on top is infected and just chuck it out and get some new yeast to use this weekend? What about the other starter? Would you guys use it, or not?
