    #1717329 - 07/15/03 05:11 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)


I cased one of my fully colonized rye jars.Now I am waiting the mycelium to appear on the non-nutrient ,however ,I realized the known rye smell and it's disgusting.But there are also some white parts on the layer what should I do ?Wait or throw?

If it starts to smell real bad, toss the whole thing.
You don't have to wait for the top layer to go all white, that would be a disadvantage. Do a 5 day incubation after making the casings and before putting them in the terrarium, that's all you need.

There are white things on the non-nutrient but I'm not sure if it's mycelium.Is it possible that I injured the colonized grains by crumbling them with fork.I know sharp tools may cause injury,however,I forgot what I read in the text,so,may that be a reason ? thanx for your advice..

Mycelium recovers very well from such damage, that shouldn't be an issue.
The white things you talk about, are they root like ?
Does the smell dissipates after a while or is it persistent ?

A smelling casing is not a good thing, it's a sign of contamination and because of that it could make it impossible for the casing to fruit. So, you could be wasting your time.
Yes, you can dunk or wash the mycelium. Use destilled or sterilized water to do so.
