Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Mold on starter affect batch?
I put 2 starters together a while back with some of the oak chips from Vinnie's NHC presentation. One has developed mold (guess I didn't do a good enough job of researching ways to avoid mold), and one hasn't, but it does have white creamy looking substance on the top of it.

Are these both screwed, or do you think it's possible I could siphon off some of the starter without adversely affecting the beer I pitch it into?

Are you sure it's mold?

The first one, yes. It's green.

The second one, no. It's white. Kind of creamy white to off white in color substance, sort of froth-like.

Green is probably not good, although I can you can remove the mold and the rest of the wort is fine, I've never had the pleasure of trying myself.

The second one sounds like a Brett pellicle to me -- nothing to fear.
