Bacteria? or no...? looking for good eyes
    #16189077 - 05/06/12 07:07 AM (6 years, 18 days ago)

What do you all think? Bateria? Or just condensation and grains pushing up against the plastic? To be perfectly honest, I can't even tell.

I'm not there to smell it, FOAF says he can't smell anything through the filter.... but that last one looks suspect to me...
Someone told me the other day that there can be bacteria with no smell too....

what do you all think? Doesn't look like any normal growth that I ever get. Do you all agree?

They were shaken at 80%.

Thank you!

I don't see any obvious contamination, but after shaking before use, be sure to slightly squeeze the bag while taking a smell through the filter.  If it's contaminated, you'll know.

They were shot up on 4/20 with a live culture, and looked like they did in the pics for a few days now

So I get sent some more pics of another one- ThisI know for SURE (at least I thought I was sure it was, I've tossed stuff that looked like this before) is bacterial contamination in that bottom left corner, and on the bottom ....

Yet when broken up, FOAF claims not to smell anything foul......

What do you all think?

That uncolonized wet area is definitely contamination. It could be salvageable but no guarantees.

Yeah.... I hear that....  here's a better pic- it looks nasty...



Seeing the very last two I posted makes me worry about the first ones I posted lol..... he prepped them at the same time...

he expressed concerns about "creases" in the spawnbags because of sloppy storage, which may have caused some pin holes....  :facepalm3:

throwing out large spawnbags is heartbreaking.... I wish jars were cheaper in this country...
