I poured off the top of my starter to test it for off taste and smells.

Personally, I thought the yeast smelled pretty funky when I pitched it to my starter, but the starter wort smells just as intense as the yeast vial did.

Anyway, the smell is pretty sour and unpleasant. I used Extra light DME in the starter instead of wheat DME and I know that the yeast is way more concentrated in the starter than it will be in 5 gallons, but should it really smell this funky???
