Wild Yeast Discoloration

August 24, 2011 - 5:19pm -- Angelo

My barm has been rocking for months, fed regularly every week (8 ounces of barm to 16 ounces of bread flour and 16 ounces of water). Then a few weeks ago I notice a SLIGHT red/orange discoloration. I shrug and ignore it. Every week since there's been more. Now it's practically across the entire surface when I go to feed it!


What is that!?
