I know it can be difficult to tell by sight at times.

The surest way to tell is by smell. If it has an offensive odor, it is surely contaminated.

Also, in my university lab, we use test strips that give a positive reaction to the presense of harmful bacteria. I'm not certain, but I believe you can buy these test strips at pool supply stores.

I tried to insert some into my innoculation jars, but they never survive the autoclave process.

I don't know if it is practical for you or not but it would seem that the quickest and surest test would be to shake well and put a few drops of soltuion on an agar plate.

I know, duh, just inoculate something with it, but I had to say.

A newie who is careful about their shit can do those teks. mine worked the first time, you just have to be careful or lucky lol. Sometimes you can't tell by sight if its contamed with bacteria. If it stall or something thats a good indication, plus the smell.... see if it keep growing if it stops after a short time then its probably bacteria. Smell is probably your best bet thought for diagnosis

Is it contaminated if it smells kinda bad even after one day? I dont understand how it can smell bad after one day due to contams. I had a jar like that. I dont know ... I just was hoping that a bad smell was natural to honey jars cuz thats all I've ever gotten. But then again, I dont have proper materials, a proper workspace, or any experience. so ... I could just be sucky cuz of my newbie status.

Glad it all worked well for you.

Anno does raise a good point. Often seen here are the folks that ask, "How do I get the most in the least amount of time?". Some want to know how to cultivate pounds before grams. This, of course, is the wrong idea.

When a goal is set too high, mistakes will often be made. Luckily, most of us learn from these mistakes. A better idea would be to learn from the mistakes and experiences of others.

If anything, honeywater should have a honey smell. Likely, it will have no scent at all.

Any quick change in scent, expecially offensive odors, should be seen as a warning to you. Yes, even after a single day odors may be noticed from a contaminated jar.

Bacteria thrives under two conditions: Moist and warm. Agar jars are perfect growth conditions for bacteria.

Don't take chances. If you suspect a jar may be contaminated, don't use it.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
