I'm building up some 1469, and the yeast sample I built up from the fridge smelt a bit sour, but I thought that might just be due to some autolysis.

After stepping it up, I still get sour notes on the nose.

Life's too short to take the chance right - chuck it at and get a fresh smack pack?

Or has anyone else gotten that kind of smell from 1469?
