cakes gone bad???
    #1215164 - 01/13/03 05:33 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I had all 12 jars successfully colonized and most were fruiting Pf tek). They weren't doing as good as I'd expect to get from 12 cakes (3 dried grams in a little over 3 weeks since fruiting began) so I decided to case. When i break them apart they have a rubbery shell of myceilium around the outside but there is no growth on the inside. It smells like mush but also ever slightly off. the inside is very moist too.
Isn't there supposed to be growth all thru the substrate? I've had good success with casing but this is my first time with cakes. Am I wasting my time trying to case these?

maybe you didn't let them incubate long enough, or maybe it really is colonized on the inside, if it held together after splitting it open it would crumble apart if the inside wasn't colonized i'm guessing

Makes sense to me...PF cakes are supposed to have a "Rubber shell"...IMO

you'll notice that all PF style cakes are like that. The centers are so dense that it almost looks as though it's not colonized. If it actually hadn't been colonized, you's have some nice contams by now. The key here was that you said it still smelled like mushrooms. when it comes to dealing with baterial contams, smell means a lot. Most other contams are visible (ie. molds)
