Of course the lid slipped and fell into the flask. I quickly got it out but am wondering if I should be concerned. I did notice a dark brown spot of mystery goo resting on top of the light brown krausen today. What are your thoughts? What should I be looking out for?
Hey ewhite, I see you're in Columbia...that's right down the road from me.
I think you'll be fine with the starter.
If I can make a suggestion for next time, crack the lid on the vial first to release pressure, them you can shake it. This way it won't spray everywhere.
