sneaker smell ?
    #1342002 - 02/28/03 05:43 AM (15 years, 24 days ago)

Hi ,

I know my owner will get flamed for this but he has read all the faq and still needs to ask a qusetion about the sneaker smell,

One of his jars when he first opens it gives off the sneaker smell but after a minute of the jar being open the odor goes away and the mushroom odor comes through nicely.

is this just bad ventilation in the jar or is he foooooked.. there are no signns of any contam and the 1 pint jars are brf and are colonizing like no tomorrow innoc with GTeacher.

sorry for the speeling errors as it difficult to type with paws :-)
thanks for the help

sensory deprevation kicks ass.....

I'd say it's Co2 built up, it's not harmful but decreases the mycelium growth rate.
Maybe you should flip the jars and untape the inoculation holes for a better air exchange.
...and keep an eye for something unusual.
