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!

WLP 645 Did something go wrong with my starter?
Picked up an vial of WL B. Clausenii for cheap as it was past its best by date. Made a starter. It smelled great and pineapple-y after a bit. Then it got to smelling like ass, literally with some stomach bile mixed in for good measure. I tried an experiment by adding a splash of it to another container with some finished beer (a scottish 60/-). That one got smelling okay, fruity after a bit and then after it begin forming a rather thick pellicle it begin to smell of nail polish remover and fruit. Literally eye watring when I took a whiff. Now it has mellowed but there is unusual pellicle growth on top. Almost furry, yet not quite mold.

I am fairly certain I will just buy a fresh vial and start over, however part of me is fairly intrigued by what is gong on here...
