How quickly did they colonize?

my vote is for mycelium, but the sour small could be another contam entirely different to dactylium.
why'd you take the lid off for the pic? asking for trouble, it's not ready yet even if it's OK

good luck :grin:

It looks healthy to me. I'd birth it in an isolated container in order to keep it from infecting the other cakes. Better safe then sorry.

Looks like mycelium. A sour smell is indicative of bacterial contam.

i agree, taking the lid off only makes the places around where you did it possibly unsterile, :wink:. I Think it looks like Mycelium :smile:

A general contamination rule of thumb is that if it smells rancid, chuck it.  I would.  :smirk:

dont feel down, i think pretty much everybody has a learning curve, if u didnt have contams u wouldnt learn. basically u get better witch ever try. Im much cleaner than i used to be. didnt ever realize how bad contams actually are. i was hoping to have fruits 30 days ago but it didnt happen, but i know how to do it right now though, if u ever need any questions answers gimme a pm and ill try to help the best i can, w/ links and other stuff. good luck and sorry to hear about ur contams.
Peace
