What does contaminated honeywater look like?
    #1823749 - 08/17/03 08:14 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

What does contaminated honeywater look like? I don't know what to look for, besides color if that ever happens. I just injected 2cc of H2o2 into the water. I can see stuff floating in there, but not sure if its mycelium. It looks more cloudy than a ball, but then again that jar just has honey and not karo in it.

An overall cloudyness is a sign of bacteria contamination, and a funky smell, but cloudy balls ( like what it seems you have) are good.

Time will tell if there mycelium balls, as they will become more strand like with age.
Sounds ok so far though.
Good luck

Ive also had trouble telling apart contams and mycelium in liquid cultures. As long as it is a concentrated (ie, not an overall cloudiness), white, stringy mass that doesnt smell then it is mycelium. Good luck. Heres what my jars looked like: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...rue#Post1823084
