I've got a washed 2nd gen 3787 and a split from a starter of 3711 that both have a suspicious light grey sediment on the very top of yeast. Both were put into boiled mason jars in 11/11 and I've used siblings of both without problem. The catch is my yeast fridge lost power this spring for about 72 hours...

So what do you guys think... Step em up or dump 'em?

Yes, 3L boiled and cooled but I'm skeptical on how well that will work. Here's a pic of the starter after 24 on a stir plate. Notice the clumps.

Who knows what it will look like after 3 weeks of sitting. My DIY hop screen did a decent job of scrubbing the worth though so hopefully most of the gunk is yeast.
