Help! Yellow-Orange Semi-Hard Coating on Cakes
    #1745856 - 07/24/03 09:43 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I pulled a cake out the other day to check if it was ready for birthing, but decided it wasn't, so I put it back in the jar and back into the incubator. Now, several days later, fuzz is starting to form, and the mycelium looks like it's grown through the substrate in the middle.

However, there is a patchy yellow-orange coating that has developed (very rapidly) on random spots on the top and sides of the cake. The patches are somewhat hardened, harder than the cake, but not like a scab or anything. The cake has a slightly off smell to it, which makes me suspicious, but the stuff is fairly hard to remove and appears to be merged with the mycelium, so perhaps it's just a damaged portion of the cake.

I've had zero contamination problems up to this point, and have worked in as sterile conditions as possible. I've been doing checks like this on many other cakes with no problems thus far. This cake is fully colonized on the surface, where the orange spots appeared. Any thoughts?

"I pulled a cake out the other day to check if it was ready for birthing, but decided it wasn't, so I put it back in the jar and back into the incubator."

There is your problem! Don't take an uncolonized cake out of a jar, your just wishing for contams that way. Everyone makes mistakes, but this could have been avoided by reading a little bit.

Perhaps, but it's also very frustrating to wait for cakes that are done already when my time is running short. Is there any good way to know if cakes are fully colonized without opening them up to check? I've heard the "3-day rule," and all that, but it's not always very consistent. I've had cakes that grow through the middle before the surface even finishes, and I've had cakes gobble up the surface without even touching the inside of the substrate.

inoculate 1 spot in the middle with 1/4 cc and then when it is fully colonized on the outside it is done
also you can save a lot of spore fluid this way
expect to wait an extra 3 to 7 days for full colonazation

Good idea on the middle-of-the-jar innoculation. I'd thought about trying that, but didn't know how well it would work. Probably a better bet than trying to put 1 cc in each hole to speed things up.

yes you have the funk on your cakes, you can try and cut it out and save them but chances are they are done. i have tried to save contamed cakes before but never had any luck. if i were you i would trash them and start again, by the time you fuck around with them for another week you could be well on your way to a new batch. but thats just my opinion.

The only trading i have ever done was sending someone a syringe or two wanting nothing in return so your rating of me on trading needs to be removed...Do it prick or i will ask Admins to remove it ...your choice bitch!!TxTec...
