I put my LC in the fridge to wait until I was able to noc up some jars. Today , I went to go take a look at the mycelium and I noticed this brownish stuff inside. Everything else that shipped in the bag was removed. I figured this was the best place to start before I went into panic mode.

Hard to tell. If it was LC ONLY and no spores then that would rule out clumped spores you see in mumtispore water syringes.

Best way would to make up a small test jar and try it out. If good then no waste is the test jar for grain to grain transfer. If bad you have only lost 1 jar

I never succeeded with LC's, and they always looked like your pic. My best guess is yeast, you'll be able to smell it. Some strains of yeast tend to clump, and usually they are brown in color.
If the bubble wasn't there when you made the syringe, it's possible that it has formed because of the CO2 the yeast puts out.

But I agree with sybearknot; a test jar wouldn't be a bad thing.

Yeast? Great..This LC was from a vendor that I've heard/read great things about , which threw me off when I saw this brown stuff. I'm just going to test a jar when I get a chance. A contamination before I even start smh.
