Default Infected starter? Pic

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 like a normal krausen to me.

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?

I'll throw another "It's krausen" bill into the hat.

Break material in the krausen, no worries.

Your shiny bubble is most likely due to Star san or sanitizer. The rest it just break matter or yeast. Perfectly normal.
