I made a starter yesterday, and it has some funk on top this morning. I was out of DME to make it so I used some extra runnings from a beer I was making. What do you think? Infected, or just some Krausen starting up?
Looks normal to me (although it's hard to tell if the stuff in the middle is chunky or if it's just wort showing through the krausen.) Did you boil the extra runnings before you pitched yeast into the starter?
And I'd like to see my 1.080 beers ready from grain to glass in a week, and served to me by red-headed twin penthouse pets wearing garter belts and fishnet stockings, with Irish accents, calling me "master luv gun," but we can't always get what we want can we? :)
