I have about a half gallon of unboiled wort in a mason jar from 2-3 weeks ago.  It has been in the fridge since brew day.  It is sealed good, the mason jar lid is depressed since it was put in hot and there is nothing odd about it.  Any reason I could not use this for a starter?  I am out of DME and it is this or nothing.

Not worth ruining the yeast or a batch to me. Drauflassen.

The man has spoken and let it be so.  In accordance with the scriptures thou shalt not use that old wort.  :D

 

Wait.  Can't you just boil it, cool it and use it?  :huh:

Yes, that was what I was asking Ken. My plan was to boil it and use it. It was un-boiled since I took it off the Nash.

That is an option as well or just brew an ale with 05 till I can get this Czech lager yeast going.

If you're playing with M84 I'd do a proper starter then step it up or Drauflassen. Stuff is cantankerous as hell.

This.

 

Make an AG starter

 

A much better alternative to using old, unboiled wort.

That's probably the best option that hits the middle of the Venn diagram in this scenario.

It’s fine. Check the ph but it should be fine to use. I’ve used a ton of jarred wort for starters.
