Bad smell...
    #1869560 - 08/31/03 11:45 PM (17 years, 8 months ago)

My jars that were innoculated 4 days ago have a bad, rancid (thats the best i could describe it...rotten would work too) smell to them. Theyre PF Tek jars, verm/BRF. I have one karo/water jar that doesnt smell at all, and am putting that jar away just in case i have contams so i can start over with that. What do you all think?

Im not sure...however I can see water on the inside glass, so I assume its damp. Maybe too wet?

Could be, but a little moisture is common, too wet
oftern leads to bacterial, and bad smells. Try to
isolate the smelly ones from the rest.
Good luck
