Bacterial Contam in PF Jars? Looking for pics to compare
    #2065596 - 11/02/03 06:23 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

OK, first of all, I have read every contam related FAQ and looked at all the contam pics in the info section. I have 21 jars incubating right now. A few of them are starting to show what I suspect may be bacterial contamination. However, I am new to this and am unsure of what such a contamination actually looks like. None of the pictures I could find on this site were clear enough for me to tell if what I have is the same thing. I do not want to open my jars to smell them, b/c then I'd surely get contams.

The top 1/4 of the jars in question are starting to look a tad mushy. There is no discoloration, the area actually looks kind of like I injected glue or corn starch and water mixed together or something. Should I remove these jars from my incubator immediately? Does anyone have good pics of bacterial contamination so that I can compare?

I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

So you have a sort of milky liquid forming
in the jar? That sounds like a bacterial contam to me.

One way to check the smell without opening the jars is
to place them in a plastic bag and semi s seal it, then leave
for a few hours, open and smell the air in the bag. This is asuming your jars have some sort of air exchange vents (i.e holes or
filters in the lid)

You  will be able to get an idea of the smell that way,and bacteria
never seems to smell good :tongue: so anything realy funky, and none shroomy
is a sign of contamination.


good luck.

Bacterial contamination smell is very nasty.
An advice, don't try smelling the jars after eating a meal.

The jars don't look too bad today, actually. The area is not so much "milky" it just looks wet and the mycellum is not growing well there. I took the lid off one of the jars in question and took a sniff but I didn't notice any nasty aromas. I put the jars that looked questionable in a seperate incubator and will just wait and see how they turn out. Thanks for the advice though. Again, if anyone has any pics or links to pics of bacterial infection I'd appreciate it.
