Started a yeast starter last night. Had a Bell jar since 5/17 of London ESB that I wanted to see if it was still viable.

After making the 2L starter, I added the ESB.

The color changed from brown to greenish grey.

After 12 hours, the color of the mixture is still greenish grey, shows signs of fermentation (bubbles rising from solution), and when I drop the spin bar, the heavy foculant yeast is collecting as the greenish-grey causing material.

Never seen this before, and the bell jar smelled fresh and "yeast-y" prior to pitching into the starter.

I haven't tasted or smelled the starter yet, I'm waiting a few more hours but...

...am I worrying, or should I just dump and start anew?
