WLP 515

I received some WLP 515 a few days ago to experiment with. As I pulled it out to acclimate for my starter, I noticed a black "dot" (for lack of a better term) located in the yeast.

I have never witnessed this in any of my WL vials before. Thoughts?

Heard back from White Labs

Heard back from White Labs and they said they'd need a pic to be sure, but more than likely just a speck of burnt wort. (This will also be in the next episode of the show)

Thanks for the follow-up. Had

Thanks for the follow-up. Had a chat w/Marshall and he had stated seeing this a few times himself in WL offerings. He had also suspected caramelized wort. Wish I had taken a pic.

Starter was normal. Fermentation was uneventful. Kegged it up today. Cell count/analysis of slurry showed no anomalies.
