Whoa! In that case, you'll need to call Dr. Frankenstein. Hope you saved some flakes from a previous mix.

If the smell was that "off" it is best and safest to just throw it out. The hooch would have smelled kind of like beer or wine. Store it in the fridge though...from now on...the cooler drier environment tends not to let the unwanteds in

Makes you appreciate the old "sourdough" cooks that kept that stuff going in the old days!
