Could be the syringe you're using.  Or maybe the contaminants are entering through the innoc hole in the brief time it's unfiltered.  Are you using a glovebox/similar?

I would stop trying to be fancy with the fluids, gypsum, and lime. Just use water. No need for those other ingredients until you make your substrate.

When you stated that you did everything sterile:
Did you use a glove box when inoculating? Flow hood?

The grains look fine...

I think lime is only used in casing layers though, but someone correct me if I am wrong.

I would say its the syringe/spores, if that is what you are using. Did you make your own syringe and let the spores rehydrate before using?

Any sour smells?

Try reinoculating the jars with no growth. Couldn't hurt. If you haven't seen growth by now you probably aren't going to get any.

honestly i wouldnt knock up jars again that didnt grow.

scratch it and try a new batch would be my move there. i wouldnt want to roll the dice and see failure again, when i could start fresh and try and get it right this go round.

seems like if you knocked those up again you would just be setting yourself up for the same results again where if you start over you might have a chance of win.

I had my first WBS jars sit for 2 weeks once after inoculation. Not sure why they didn't colonize. But they smelled and looked fine so I shot them up again and started seeing growth within a few days.

i got my spore syringes from spore works. bought 4 and used all 4. the picture of the contaminated one is just that one, all the other jars that have been properly sealed are PERFECT inside and been that way for 3+ weeks with no contaminants; so i know im doing SOMETHING right. my next project will be the EXACT same except ill use plain water in my soak...not the gypsum/lime/coffee mix i made.

to digress for a second, my 1st projectwas pf cakes and just a top layer of plain verm as a protectant. again, i got my spores from spore works and they didnt colonize. there wasnt any contaminants either till i got frustrated and stuck the jars in a 100 degree attic for a while, eventually they started to smell like cheese, no visible contams though.

o im not saying that it cant be done, it makes perfect sense. my only issue is that what if he did contaim those jars and thats his issue. if thats the case, then hes going to see the same results, and lose more spores.

thats why id start over.

this is how they have all looked for 3+ weeks. things inside are PERFECT, except after 3 weeks much of the moisture has dissipated

Its possible you got some bunk syringes. If you had any solution left you could make an LC to see if any growth occurred.

This might sound like a silly question, and I mean no offense.  But, did you see black floaty clouds in the syringes?  If so, did you shake them up to disperse the mass before inoculating?

I bombed my first syringe, due to spores being stuck on the plunger and not floating around. I noticed the tip turn black as the spore sludge stopped it up just as I nocked the last jar. Made sure to give the others a good thumpin before shakin.

This may also sound like a silly question, but did you wait for the jars to fully cool down before you inoculated.  Not just like an hour or two, but wait overnight to make sure there's no residual heat to kill the spores?  I usually PC several batches over a couple days and then wait another day, then knock them all up.  Sorry to hear about your luck though.  And also, I'd like to say that your syringes could possibly be bunk, but if you got them from sporeworks I highly doubt it, as I've never seen any issues with the quality of the spores I've purchased from them.
