craziest thing thats ever happened to me
    #1776802 - 08/03/03 11:35 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

i prepared some popcorn.. soaked it and so forth.. i loaded into the jars but i never put the lids on to pc due to lack of polyfil.. i look today.. 3 days later and one of the jars is 100% colonized.. like pure white with mycellium... i don't know what strain it is. i want to case it but theres like 5 spots of what looks like a dark colony of ants or something.. should i just toss and note it for the records or should i maybe try casing and see if the mycellium could rid itself of the contams?

Your trying to fruit a contamination? That could be some nasty shit. I know a biologist who once tried to fruit athlete's foot fungus for a project, and it got really nasty

Did you even inoculate? Brain farmer is right. It's definitely a whole jar of cobweb. There is absolutely no way it is mycelium. Especially after only 3 days. Cobweb grows really fast too. Maybe you should do some pf cakes before you try more grains. I don't mean to discourage you, but you should probably learn a little more about the mushroom life cycle before trying things like popcorn. Dunking a cake in bleach is a really bad idea, mycelium takes at least a week and a half to colonize a quart jar, mycelium needs spores to grow, and the reason why jars need to be sterilized is because you are creating a perfect environment for growing lots of molds and bacteria. If you soak any kind of grain and let it sit for a few days open to the air, it will grow lots of nasties. Please throw your jars away imediately, before you contaminate your whole house! This is not something crazy or unnusual. Someone made almost the exact same mistake a few weeks ago. He was so amazed that his pf jars colonized without him even getting a syringe near them or sterilizing them in any way. I know that it seems like common sense, but someone should add this to the faq before anybody gets hurt.
