my incubator smells like rancid yogurt
    #1261796 - 01/30/03 12:44 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

i don't think the smell is coming from the jars because i sniffed all of them and they're odorless and they seem to be colonizing just fine. However, when i initially put the jars in the incubator, i had put a tray of perlite and water for humidity(someone told me to take it out cuz i didn't need it during incubation). A lof of water drizzled to the bottom and became stale and made it stink. so I opened up my lid overnight to let all the humidity out, but still there's a heavy scent of sour yogurt whenever i open up my incubator, which is a rubbermaid tub. Any thoughts?

Whoever told you that you didn't need the perlite was correct. Try taking your jars out and whipping it clean with a rag. Then spray it with lysol or a disinfectant. You should be good to go. But before you do anything, take a good CLOSE look at your jars to ensure there is no contamination.

i found the source of the smell. one of the jars was contaminated. They call it the 'Sour Rot' in the FAQ

If you haven't done so, then, you should still clean out your incubator with a strong disinfectant like Lysol, or bleach. The nasties that make the box smell bad can linger, getting into your future batches.
