question
    #11167744 - 10/02/09 03:04 AM (8 years, 7 months ago)

i have a question and am going to try and be as short and specific as possible.

i created a casing growth mixture from 2 cakes from 2 of the 10 cakes i had. about 3 days later i noticed a funky color on the cakes so i tossed them. its been about 2 weeks since then, my casing on top is not colonized but are growing mushrooms from the sides. i have noticed a weird smell now as i am noticing mushroom growth. this is my first time experimenting with casing. now what i am concerned about is does a smell alone mean that the shrooms are not edible, or do i need to SEE some sort of mold to make them inedible?

any answers would be appreciated. i really want to try these but am concerned about the possibilities. please let me know not what you think but what you know

you noticed a funky colour so you just assumed they were gonners and tossed them??

I bet they were fine, and you mistake bruising for contam.

I'm really not sure what you are doing with your casing. if I understand you correctly, you are busting up colonized cakes and using that as a casing layer? Do you have a tek on that? Not to sound condescending, but it honestly sounds like you don't know what you're doing so you're just making shit up as you go along.

I've sometimes noticed a little unpleasant smell with horse manure substrate after pasteurization, but it was gone at 100% colonization. Hope this helps. :rockon:
