I filled some jars with substrate and was too busy to pc them. Now they're mouldy....

If I PC them, can I salvage the substrate, or should I begin anew?

PCing is supposed to kill everything, right? The mould has had a good go at the substrate, though.

It's about 15% colonised already.

You should 100% IMO start again.

You can get away with PCing and then storing for 1-2 weeks usually
if your sterile procedure is up to par, but sadly not the other way
around.

Once mold has taken over I would call things a failure. PC the jars
to kill whatever mold you have cultured and then empty the jars in
a garbage bag outside. Re-use the jars for your next try.

I just emptied the jars, and filled them with hot water. I'll wash them up properly later when they've cooled down, and perhaps spray them with aerosol disinfectant.

I want to mix up some substrate and pc today.

never , never PC and use those moldy jars- even on the rare chance you were able to get some mycelium going, the mold would come back with vengeance!
