LAB gone bad

Hi everyone!

Recently had two batches of LAB sit too long with dairy milk. Pretty sure I know the answer, but wanted to see if anyone had experience using LAB once dark mold presented itself on the separated curd on top?

Thanks!

iv had some green & white molds but never like a black mold would recommend carefully removing the curd from the whey then smell the whey ….is it rotten ..bad juju …does it smell fine .. should be ok trust your nose it will tell u if its bad or not the only other concern i would think would be the amount of microbes u r harvesting the longer it set as the microbes feed the more that would have died off as the food ran out but id say as long as its not rotten it’s fine LAB is really hardy and will beat out most bad juju as long as there’s enough food and if all else fails compost it nature will make it great food in time

    Thank you. Yes, I decided to err on the side of caution, and composted the lot. It was quite funky in a way that didn’t sit right with me. Definitely a learning lesson in keeping track, but also acting quick.
