The OG was 1020-1030 and both are down to 1000 at 70-80 deg.

I just tasted the stater for both the pedio and lacto. Both were sour and the pedio was a little vinegary. I don't expect the starters to taste really good, but they were a allot funkier then expected. Awful really!

Any thoughts on how bad is still okay for this stuff to taste?

Do not bother tasting starters, much less bug starters unless you are extremely experienced with it. You are just going to freak yourself out.

Of course, the only way to get experienced with it is to taste it, so maybe taste it, but DON'T FREAK OUT. Starters with Sacc taste gross, much less bug starters.
