I pitched some crushed grains into warm water a few days ago to try an "easy" lactic starter. I smelled it today and there is a DMS aroma to it. Has anyone made a starter like this before and had this problem? Is it something that I can just hold out for a week or two and the lacto will take over?

When I make mine I use 1 cup grain to 1 cup water. Search for Morkin Imperial Berliner. I have used his process and it works great.
