So what do you think?
    #1722361 - 07/16/03 07:35 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

The general rule as I have heard it is "when in doubt throw it out" but so far that would leave only knitting as a hobby. Pat has done some research and (thanks to you Anno) she has seen some photos of commom contams. She doesn't know if this is just overly wet grain or a problem. I was hoping someone here could help her out.

The above statement has been a figment of my imagination. Niether the statement nor the writer is real, we are both fiction & should not be taken seriously in any way

This is bacterial contamination. Due to a high water content and insufficient sterilization.
Try prolonging the sterilization and it also helps if you let the grain soak for 12.24 hours before sterilization for the bacterial endospores to germinate.

I agree with you Anno. Toss it.
