I recently purchased a pack of Omega Hornindal to use on a Kettle sour. I built a large starter to be able to save some of the yeast. The brew came out great so I wanted to do the same thing again. Built my 1.036 1L starter, added 1tsp of slurry and left it on the stir plate @73*. Started seeing activity within an hour and after 14 hours all activity was gone. I went to move the starter to the fridge and got a huge smell of eggs coming out of the flask. I was worried so I left it in the fridge for a few days and decided to try making another starter. Maybe it was the low temp? So I did the same exact steps in creating the starter, but left it at 83 this time (couldn't my starter to 90*). Again same outcome. Does anyone think its OK to pitch? What about drying it? Should I take the slurry from the egg smelling flask and see if I can dry it?
