Are my Allen jars contaminated?
    #1179309 - 12/30/02 09:36 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hello, I recently began my second set of jars (PF tek style) with the Allen strain.  I steam sterilized 8 jars for about 75 minutes.  I then let them cool, and innoculated them the next day on a sink in a bathroom.  Beforehand I sprayed the area down non-stop with Lysol.  I also used an alcohol flame in between each jar to sterilize the syringe.  I noticed some condensation on the top of the jars, underneath the actual foil.  I innoculated about 5 days ago.  As I've only grown once before (EQ), I have only that to compare this too, and I remember the mycelium as being a very bright white.  This seems to look a bit "muddy" almost like cobweb (especially the last two pictures).  Any input would be appreciated  :confused:

They look fine.

What do you mean by this, are you actually opening the jars ?
BTW, if you're not using ruber bands to secure the foil, do it. Adhesive tape will also work.
