Is this contam? check pic

Well it looks like it has happened again. I have now lost my 5th casing (each containing 3 healthy cakes) to contamination brought on by unpasteurized coco coir, after taking advice from at least 5 people on these forums who told me ' don't bother pasteurizing'.
The cakes that I birthed are fine and healthy, so my hygene is not an issue.Its just most of my casings that are ruined.
Its just this one act of not pasteurizing the coco coir that has ruined about 2 months of work!

I'm assuming this pic shows early contam ( very bright powder like growth, usualy occuring just before green sets in) What do you think?

Could be overlay, but that may be wishful thinking...

You will know in a day or two.

Some brands of coir must be pasteurised, always do it as a precaution.

Good luck

Yeah, I thought overlay at first. But realised that this has happened overnight.The growth seems far too aggresive and fast to be mycelium.
I have isolated the casing from others and will keep an eye on it. My gut instinct is contam though.

Something growing that fast is not a good sign. Try to see what happens in a couple of days.
