contams due to dunking?
    #1041238 - 11/10/02 05:19 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

i dunked a casing yesterday and when i took it out today to recase there were lots of little pins that were dark blue and some parts of the mycelieum were almost black. is that normal ? i was thinkin that it may be a contam or something like that

i have had contams caused by dunking, and it was my fault for not using boiled water with H2O2 added. Or because the bag was not very well closed [all food things around were breathing to my mycelium]

so it could be a contam. In my cases it was always a cobweb mold which is whitish and has nothin to do with dark blue/black. i could say bruising can cause blueish things obviously, but very dark colors and especially black are not so cool for a shroomerite to hear of.

a pic could have been much helpful though

I had the same thing happen to me when I dunked my casing, the pins are just aborts that you didn?t notice before.
They should just be picked and it should be fine.

Listen, or your tongue will keep you deaf. :wink:
