Smells bad, looks ok - what do you do? (3 PICS)
    #1195859 - 01/06/03 08:32 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

There are three jars that have been in the incubator since Dec 1st - that would make it about five or six weeks. These are lagging jars that didn't make it as quickly as their brothers did. Now they are almost fully colonized and they look fairly okay, but they are smelling like dirty socks if you crack the lid.

Here's what they look like: forgive the crummy cam.


This is likely candidate #1. Ignore that freaky purple thing on the right, I have no idea what that is, it must be The Shroom Goblin or something.


This is #2. Now, that brown crap might just be BRF, or it could be contam, you decide.


Here is #3. I know it looks sort of blue and green, but NOTHING on the cake is blue or green, that's just the cam. It is mostly golden yellow, but the BRF is pretty soaked in it.

Again, there is NO blue or green on any of these guys (that's just my crummy cam), but they do smell funny. What would you do? Thanks for any help!!

it looks like things are to moist in there! what are you wait for in birthing these cakes? i think its due time. to long incubation time leads to cotamination

They are juuuuuust pulling up on colonizing all the way to the top today. #1 still has a nice bare patch of BRF. #2 and #3 weren't doing anything for a while, and then somebody discovered that they'd made progress while nobody was looking.

They ARE way, way too wet, even after tipping and letting the moisture drip to the verm. You should think of 'em as salvage jobs I guess . . .
