Yeast problems
    #1655200 - 06/23/03 03:23 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

So My friend buys a syringe of Ecuadors from a reputable spore supplier, and then he got wbs jars full of yellow pollen like powdery contams. Trashed all the jars and all his hard work. He did some experimentation and found that it was undoubtedly the syringe. So he told the supplier and the guy was very cool and sent him a new batch of the same strain. He knocks up some more jars and boom, same contam. So he e-mails the spore supplier again and finds out that the supplier thought his other batch of Ecuadors wasn't contamned but that it must be too, so he pulled equadors from his stock entirely after this until he could fix the problem.

But now my friend is left with a dilema. This second batch of jars has healthy mycelium growing along with the contams and he'd rather not throw out a whole 'nother shitload of jars if they can be spared. So he asks the spore supplier if he could grow them out anyway, and the supplier says that the contam is a type of yeast and that it is harmless. He tells my friend that if he lets them grow out, the mycelium should overtake the contam and everything will be fine. So, should he take the spore suppliers advice? (he is a very reputable shroomery sponsor) He really doesn't want to throw out the jars, but he's heard that some types of yeast can be quite harmful. He can take pics of the contam if necessary, and provide the id of the supplier through pm under certain circumstances. (He doesn't want to hurt anyones reputation cause the supplier was really cool about everything). Any help would be appreciated.

Dear Demiurge:

I've had the same yellow-powdery problems when I first started. Not your fault, we all come across bumps in our paths to learning... the more we learn the smoother the ride gets! Don't be disheartened by throwing out jars... once I had to throw out 30 QUART jars due to a nasty contamination from a bad syringe.

My advice is NO, chuck them out! Yes, it may be yeast, but what if it isn't... then you could become ill.
Nothing is worth more than your health.

Good luck, hope you make the right decision...

Definitely toss 'em. There's no reason to risk it, especially since it won't take an extraordinary amount of effort to ante up again.

Contams are not to be fucked with, 'less you are absolutely positive in your identification.
