I made my first starter for my planned first batch on friday... What a mess.. Should have video taped it. Could have entered it into Am Funniest Videos.. lol

Had my first boil over..

Cooled the wort in the sink and added my liquid yeast. Shook very well..

I seem to have a layer of white deposit on the bottom of the flask.. Think that is good.

Wish me luck...

Welcome to the club. I finally started using large 3Qt apple juice jars for my starters. THey still "boil over".

Your starter will be fine. One think I learned is that if you can give your starter 5-6 days (or more), your yeasties have more time to multiply and that's the whole point.

I would clean up the outside mess and leave the rest alone. The white sediment is yeast, but there is a ton of yeast suspended in your solution. Don't throw that out.

Swish the entire jar around when you're ready to pitch and throw the whole thing in.

Luck...
