Default Should my starter look like this???

I have done a few starters in the past but not a lot. Anyways, I started this one ysterday and it looks like this. Is this just the yeast? It's wlp007 English Dry Yeast.

Thanks a bunch. It is actually really fresh yeast also, just packaged on 12-5.

Thanks!

Your flask looks a little too full for my comfort zone and there appears to be some break material floating around (which is fine) or yeast clumps I guess. Looks fine to me, I wouldn't worry.

Looks normal to me. A lot of English yeasts clump together like that. I've seen similar looking pics

Alright, thanks. yes, it is pretty full but been fine. I'm going to throw it in the fridge tonight for two days then do one more step up. Should be ready by friday!

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure thie chunky stuff was ok. The ones i have done in the past all just blend into the beer and make the wort look cloudy until it settles for a bit. This stuff is THICK!
