I made a starter using wlp037 two weeks ago I wasn't able to brew as palnned so I sanitized a mason jar and have been holding it in my beer fridge. Today I looked inside and found these white formations on the top of the cake. It has a slight sour smell to it. Would hate to dump infected yeast on perfectly good wort. Thanks

I was willing to give up on it since it was a starter... If it was my 10gal batch I would have gave it every oppurtunity in the world.
