Just cased... some questions
    #1087732 - 11/26/02 03:16 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Ok i just cased 2 of my fully colonized cakes with 50/50 tek... cakes looked fine to me untill i opened the jars and this strong fruity smell hit my nose... the colllor of the cakes is bright white but im afraid that i cased cobweb instead mucilium... how does cobweb smell? also i covered my tray with aluminum foil should i use saran wrap instead?

don't know about the contams but i suggest aluminum because it keeps out light while providing more air. if light isn't a worry, poking some holes in the plastic wrap will help.

probably not cobweb since cobweb is a fast moving contam. it will takeover a jar in a few days.  also the older it gets its known to turn pink.  you are probably alright.  apply casing layer after mycellium recovers. cold shock when first signs of mycellium poke thru the casing layer and then patch those areas and let her start to fruit :laugh: oh yea expose to some light everyday.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

>the smell is just the smell of mushrooms

Further up you said "strong fruity smell".

You have to decide, either the one, or the other.

the smell isnt different much from the smell of some mushroom i found in the woods couple of weeks ago... there was only big cap and no stem ?.

what really bothers me is some cotton fluffy stuff that was on the very top of the vermiculate layer... im afraid that it might be cobweb and i cased it with everything else... well in couple of days im going check my casing and see if anything else beside mycelium grows....

*sigh* cultivation is not that easy...

That "cotton fluffy stuff" that you describe is most likely just aggressive mycelium.
