So my ferts molded

I made a large batch in a 1 gallon jug and didnt use it fast enough. can I run this through a strainer to get the mold out and keep using it? or is it toast?

Add a bit of excel next time you make your mixture.

Its still fine to dose, I have done it in the past without any issues. Im not sure how much the suggested amount of vinegar is, but I suggest 15ml of excel per 500ml, so that would be close to 100ml in a gallon. How much vinegar did you add?
