Strange odour
    #2054159 - 10/29/03 06:19 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

A foafoaf have inoculated some jars, and they have taken quite a long time (10 days) to show any life at all. Now some of them are starting to get nice little white patches, but two of them were suddenly rather green and nasty.

The thing is that they've started to smell like old sweat, quite harsh, but not extremely unpleasant. Should jars smell like that during colonization, is this the green mold, or is it something else?

Non-contaminated jars do not have an unappetizing smell.  At most you should notice a slight grainy smell.  Old sweat=ammonia/nitrogenous compounds, a sure sign of bacterial growth.  Since it's a strong smell, odds are the jars are heavily laden with it.  Better luck next time :frown:
