Accidently (kinda) opened contam jar inside! :(
    #14716031 - 07/04/11 04:21 PM (9 years, 10 months ago)

so I have some jars that have been colonising for weeks now, and one looked about done so I decided to go ahead and birth it (it did have some bacterial issues but I *think* the myc won in the end...

anyway.. I opened the jar in my kitchen, where I normally do my jars... and there was what looks to be cobweb mould growing out the top of the dry verm...

for some reason I decided to go ahead and dunk the cake but I think I'm just gunna put some bleach in the water and then chuck it out..

but anyway... will this ruin my future attempts - given that I opened this jar indoors? I hope not...

Do a decent job cleaning the area (Bleach water, Iso, Oust, etc) and it shouldnt be an issue.

What looks like cobweb mold might just be the mycelium growing through the dry vermiculite layer. You may want to do more mycological studies on what it looks like. Maybe a picture.

thanks - I've sprayed everything down with bleach now :smile: I'm hoping it's gunna be okay!

I'm pretty sure it was cobweb (or something) cus not only was it grey and fluffy, but it had like, black 'spots' growing on the end of the grey stuff.

Smell it. If it smells somewhere between a nauseating cucumber and a button mushroom it's prolly just cubes. You should post a picture too.

You can clean up with dish soap and warm water. Even if a jar is contaminated, any mold spores/myc should be killed when you pressure cook your next set of brf cakes. As far as your fruiting chamber, I would quarantine contams in a different chamber/room.

Contrary to popular belief, if you use proper sterile technique, very few contams will bother you regardless of how much crap flies around your house.
Trichoderma spores are everywhere on everything for starters.
So dont worry about opening the jar, though I pc my contam jars for 30-60 min before dumping the contents, so keep that in mind in the future.  Sometimes its not good to breathe what you've created.

sounds like overkill. You're going to be pressure cooking and killing any spores when you cook your brf. There's plenty of spores in the brown rice flour, which are probably going to be better shielded than any mold growth. soap, water, and drying off should be fine.

No no :lol:
I pc them to sterilize the contams before I open and dump the contents.  Then i rinse the jars.

Yes, clean well and spray they heck out of the area with some good sanitizer and you should be okay. From what I've heard it's the sporulated trich you really have to watch out for. I already had one close call with that nasty shit but seems I'm okay.
