a casing had a small green spot that formed in the middle down by where the crumpled mycelium is (transparent case is how it was noticed it, it covered with duct tape when pinned) so anyways a spoon got sterizled and scooped out a portion with the green area, it was inspected and noticed that the green color wasnt spread out threw the area that was removed, so now there is a chuck missing in the casing about 1.5inches by 1.5 in. Is it ok to just leave the area open
What should be done for precautions so no more contams form

well your chances are slim that u got rid of it all if it was green-it travels fast and easy-but fill that hole with whatever casing material you have....

I wouldn't suggest trying to smell it. The green mold that I've encountered is very powdery and could easily be insufflated. I don't think that would be fun.

Once a contam lik tric turns blue/green, that means it has sporalated.

Any air movement and/or removing the spot, simply spreads those spores.

With a tiny spot, pour on some salt & cover it. That sometimes contains the outbreak, but only sometimes.  Sad to say...........but seldom if ever do you beat it.

if there is a specific smell, you shouldnt know about it for the reason ekstaza said. there are a few trip reports here of people that smelled it at the wrong time (you dont even need a colored mold to infect you, a jar that is not 100% colonized with mycelium gave this guy a trip to the hospital.) for your next batch, the most likely reason that you had contams in the first place is because your casing is too acidic, test it then change it to 7-8 and you shouldnt have that problem in the future.

Just keep and eye on it. My friend had 100 pins of Cambodian when he noticed his mold.He just cut it away and it never spread.Air movement should be as close to nil as possible while cutting away...nothings a a for sure thing but we all ate those 100+ pinns and had a great time! Don't be hasty just inspect it ALOT! If it doesn't show signs of spreading then youre cool.If not get rid of it before it spreads more spores!

Here's an idea. It may be stupid but what the hell.

Somewhere I read that a good idea for gas exchange is to use a vacuum cleaner to just suck out the CO2. What if you found mold and used a vacuum to try to draw out its spores while you try to remove it. Just don't let the vacuum get to close to the cake or casing.

It couldn't hurt. You got just as much chance to loose the casing anyway. Right?

Try spraying some watered down h202 over it and make sure you cut a little extra out next time, throw in some of the extra casing material in the empty hole and hope for the best
