WBS Gone Green
    #1623369 - 06/10/03 11:33 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

One of my WBS Jars overnight turned green. The top of the jar is the greenest and heaviest so I guess thats where it started. Hopefully the other 8 Jars wont get contaminated. What can I do to prevent that - I mean they are all in the same enviroment. Also, one of my SOS cups smells yeasty. It was made two days ago and the cake wasn't 100% colonized (damn BRF centers are always so slow). Should I chuck that to be sure - I can't really see the mycellium to know if it is healthy. The smell is a bit off (I think I am just going to wait on that one).

You know there's a probability something goes wrong in one or two jars, even if you did everything by the book. Anyway, don't think too much about that, my only advice is too use a glove box to prevent airborne contaminants when inoculating.
About the other issue, throw it out, you can't save anything at that stage.
