Wet spot/sour rot contamination?
    #1421736 - 04/01/03 06:25 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Have any of you guys out there seen this? My jars have been sitting for 10 days and still no sign of the beginning of colonization. The jars look a bit wet and grey almost slimy all over. Obiously PF jars should look like this, but now that Ive read the Faq the wet spot contamination sounds like it could be the culpret. Im probably gona dump the jars, but befor I do I want to be sure that its not just bunk spores.
Have any of you seen bacillus wet spot before? The faq pics dont work, so could you describe it to me abit? What does it smell like to you? does boiling the jars several times over the period of a week eliminate this?

No, it shouldn't.

Something you definitly would not eat.

Yes, if done right, fractional sterilization is an effective technique.

.

You shouldn't have to do this with PF Jars. 1-2 hours should be enough.

The past 5 times Ive tried to inoculate BRF, the jars just sat there looking wet. Thought we had too much moisture content, but it turns out its a bacterial infection. I had no clue what was going wrong, so we changed the water ratio and saw some improvements. If this is happening to you where normally you've been successful, try getting back to the simple basics and make sure everything you're using is clean and pure. We boiled the jars and rings,(not rubber lined lids) for 90mins and after used a water&bleach solution for 20mins. Make sure sterility is not compromised or you'll be wasting time, materials, and effort. Bacillus can survive prolonged periods of heat, so the boiling as well as the bleach should take care of it. There are many people on this site that had luck in the beginning, but bottomed out in the end, and we think this should cover it. Pay attention to the details, friends, and you'll do alright!  Happy mushin!
