Give it a few more days. Invert the jar to minimize water damage. If it starts to pin heavy then you may have to birth it but you still have some time to let it do it's thing. If it starts to pin heavy then you can birth it and brand that one spot with a red hot nail to minimize contam risk.

PappaKaps- next time you may give this a shot to keep water from damaging your cakes.
Just add a small sprinkle of vermiculite to the bottom of your jars, just barely enough to cover them, before you add your substrate. This layer will absorb the small amount of water that may accumulate douring colonization.

What if I already birthed it?? Think it will get contaminated?
