Good, Bad?
    #1567151 - 05/21/03 09:55 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Heys guys. Question. A little cat has made casings using standard brf tek. Everything goes fine, cats jars colonize fine. No contams. Cat crumbls cake between damp verm. But after first flush cats casing develop a light blu/green tint all over surface. Upon inspection of the casing cat notices no other colors in casing just on the top layer of Verm. Is this normal? Or is it just some type of contam.? Let me know what you think.

Sounds like blueing of your mycelium. It's ok, it may just mean your environment is not optimal. Check your environmental parameters. Extreme variations in humidity have caused this for me.

I believe he said blu/GREEN tint all over the surface josh, now, i dont even know what "bluing of your mycelium" is, but i think the fact there is a green layer on your casing cant be good, but whadu i gno

Spray the top with a 1:10 solution of h202 and water, see what happens then.

Give it some time. Replace top layer with a new sterilized one if contaminated.
Btw, remember to mist very well during this phase, then increase air exchange to initiate pinning.
