My Wyeast Czech Pils starter was crashed in the fridge at 36 degrees F. Decanted about 1/2 oz this morning, for a taste. It is not bad, but does not taste the way I anticipated. It does not smell like the yeast after the smack-pack was opened, and it smells different from any other starter we have ever used. Plus...here is the strange phenomenon...it is carbonated! Bubbly! Very fine bubbles, almost fizzy. Not champagne like, but still lots of bubbles. What's up with that?
Note that it is in a one gallon glass jug, that was sterilized prior to use.
