Pink and yellow mold
    #1768918 - 08/01/03 12:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have tried to make about 8 quart wild bird seed jars and everytime i do it, it looks good for about 1 week... fully colonized. Then all of a sudden i take a look and it has pink and yellow mold in it! It has happened to every one of my jars. I have soaked the WBS in water for 12 hours before i PC them and i have also simmered it for 30 mins. They both get the same thing. Then only thing i can think of is when i PC the jars they don't fit standing up. I have to lean them against a glass bottle inside. They are at about a 55 degree angle. Next i'm going to try pint jars, hopefully that will work better.
Any one have this problem, or any suggestions?

PS this last time i inocced in a glovebox, but still same contams.

Are you certain the your spores are clean?

I'm pretty sure. I got them from a vendor, ralphsters spores. They are probably like 4-6 months old, but I don't think that matters at all.

How do you clean the needle between inoculations ?

i flame steralized it... although i do not have an alcohol lamp. I used i regular lighter and left it on for a good 15 seconds.
Oh yeah, and one more thing i forgot to mention. I used two different syringes, but still got the same contamination.
I'm just about ready to trash everything and scrub down my closet

Do you know you have to sweep the needle with alcohol after you flame it ?
Anyway, you should try good old PF Tek.
