vinegar smell from cakes
    #1100918 - 12/01/02 02:06 PM (18 years, 8 months ago)

I went on vacation for 10 days and put 5 cakes (brf, 1-2 flushes) cleaned off all the way, into a rubbermaid and stuck it in my fridge. when i got back i put them in the terrarium, and they stink like vinegar really badly. i see no signs of contams on any of them, but i have never had contams before. is this normal or should i ditch them all?

Vinegar smell = bacterial contamination. Toss them.

i put a bunch of cakes into a bag with water for ~20 hours.  This was weeks ago.  Ever since then there has been a vinegar smell, but no sign of contams...
I ate one yesterday... :frown:

some bacterial contam is hard to identify visually. A good rule of thumb is if the cakes smell strange, they are most likely contaminated w/ bacteria.

i have found that cakes that have a lot of built of metabolic waste smell similar to vinegar or ammonia. dunk your cakes and the water will turn yellowish, this is the cake excreting mushroom piss. there shouldnt be too much waste after 10 days unless they are in a very warm location. otherwise it could be a contam
good luck
