There should be no bad smell at all.
I'm curious like Anno, how does it smell ?

I had a huge casing that smelled like crap, it was 100% manure.
Then a lot of fuzzy shit grew on it, I thought it was cobweb, but I fruited it in a separate container anyway... turned out to be mycelium.

So don't stress it!

"Bad smell" is very subjective, i know, but dung from horses or cows which are vegetarian animals should have no strong odors if prepared properly. I personally don't have any problem handling dry dung (which is the one you should use), it's just dried vegetable matter, the smell is totally different from man crap or any other non vegetarian animal. Even when it's fresh the odor is not so unpleasant. When it's rehydrated it has even less odor than fresh, so i don't get the "crap is crap" stuff.
If you smell something like amonia, then your dung was not sufficiently sterilized/pasteurized and it's ongoing a decomposition process. Some of the bacteria making this process are not very aggressive but they harm mycelium, it inhibits its growth which sometimes decay and suffocate because the excess of amonia.

I have a parallel problem: my casing smelled fermentation (got cheese like) during early casing stage (just before terrarium). By curiosity I let it go. Now, the odor quite faded away. But the smell is now like socks after a day worn, a light odor, not teenage strong smell.
I guess I shall throw it away immediatly. (?)

But I still wonder: is fermentation = contamination? And is it risky for us?
No doubt a stupid question, but it's the place to ask it, no?

You know, usually if something ferments is because there are microorganisms that produce the fermentation.
