It's going to take a while for the straw to colonize; how long depends in part on the spawn to straw ratio you used. Be patient.

Straw does have an odor though not unpleasant.

was the brf cake fully colonized? How did you crumble the cakes? How short did you cut the straw ?    ... Straw has a strong odor. Have you never been to a pumpkin farm, or haunted house as a child? The damp straw can be nearly overwhelming.  In my aquaintances experience, Straw takes a long time to colonize using BRF cakes.  It takes them quite awhile to start mycelial growth again, and there are fewer innoculation points than with grain (unless you food proccessed them ).  Good luckj tho....  :shocked:

Make sure your straw isn't too moist. I started colonizing using pasteurized straw but I never let it sit afterwards long enough to drain properly. I had a small puddle happening in my bin but I fixed it.
