Hmm...when your jar smells kinda funny...
    #1715163 - 07/14/03 06:53 PM (18 years, 3 months ago)

Hey everyone!

My kitten innoculated jars yesterday, and when she checked them out today she noticed maybe 1-2 having a sorta funny smell, while the other ones don't smell at all.  I guess time will tell if it is a contam or not, but its only been a *day*!!!  :frown:  Grr...this time it was extra-sterile too, so it better not be. 

What to do when your freshly innoculated jar smells sort of funny/bad?  What could it be?

thanks
-Shade

There are 2 things that help any jar along, funky smellin or not.
Levaing to its own devices for days or weeks @ a time.
And time.

Anyways what are you using as substrate? I notice brf/verm jars smell kind of odd sometimes shortly after sterilization.

The reason why I was getting worried (probably jumping the gun, I know...) was because none of the other jars had this distinct odor. And Xic Clone, you're probably right. My kitten should just leave it alone and see what happens. No visible anything yet, just the funky smell.

A good precaution is to incubate the smelly jars separately from the others, just in case.
