I've got two starters ready and two worts boiling on the stove.
Both starters taste sourish and not tasty. I've never really tasted my starters before, so I don't know what they would usually taste like.
I had a batch come out sour recently, and now I'm thinking that my frozen starter wort maybe is sour/contaminated (there's no more left, but I used the last of it in these starters).
Just curious what others think. I know most people who taste them say the starters taste nasty, but sour?
I'm thinking of splitting both batches and doing half with the starter and half with dry yeast to see what's up. Or just chucking the starters and going with dry, but then I won't learn anything...
