Anyone know if this is a good sign?

I assume it is since that's what dry yeast smells like when it's rehydrated, I just want to make sure since it's the starter I was recently worried about and I don't want to pitch it if it's infected.

And now we go AG!

Rotten yeast or an infected starter smells horrible. RDWHAHB.
