Fucking pink stuff........
    #1546673 - 05/13/03 11:42 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

So my pet is terrified that this very very very slight pink color near the areas inoculated is some kind of contam.

Whats going on? Shit, my pet doesnt know how to be sterile enough even though he went gung-ho with alcohol, pressure steaming, alcohol burners, and an entire can of lysol.

FUCK

is my pet doomed?

so all the jars are screwed then, huh?

thats so fucked up. my pet spent DAYS on those fuckers.

could it have been from putting the jars in the refrigerator for a day? the fridge was sprayed down completely with lysol.....

bad syringe?

even the jars that got steriled for 3hours have a tiny bit of pink near the area of inoculation.

fucking gay

Don't be in too big a rush to dump those jars. Isolate them from the healthy ones for a few days and watch them. If the pink stuff is a contam it will darken and spread.

Don't chuck them there is a flaw in my theory. The page says it doesn't turn pink untill it matures you said you saw it right away.

It sounds like a contam. There are some yeasts and bacteria that appear as a Pepto Bismol like discoloration. Isolate the jars and continue as usual. They probably won't destroy the crop but don't expect a great yield. The bugs involved tend to produce a darker pink color at lower temps and may be colorless at higher temps. They are easily killed by heat sterilization so I would suspect the problem was a bad syringe.
