How do I tell if my friends cake is just too wet or infected with brown rot? My friends cake is fully colonized except for a little spot on the bottom that looks controversial. How dangerous is brown rot. Could he just cut that spot away and case the rest of the cake?
If it is some kind of rot it will smell. Let the cake fully colonize and see if it smells when you birth it. Sometimes verm and BRF just press up against the glass on the bottom giving the apearance of contamination.

It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

It is probably just some vermiculite that is not quite completely colonized on the bottom center of the jar. My friends jars did that too. They were what seemed to be 100% colonized and then he birthed them 4-5 days later and in the center on the bottom it wasnt colonized all the way. This being because of the lack of oxygen in the bottom of the jar. The tops were completely colonized.
