Wow.... those look like aborts. See if they grow, or what they do. How long have those been colonizing?

18 days. It's still cool to case, right?

18 days -- I'd wait longer. Post what happens to those black dots. Honestly, I've never seen this that early, but those really do look like aborts -- they're coming from the mycelium. Chances are they will die pretty soon and be eaten back by the mycelium. If not, it's contamination. If you see pins, fruit it, but if it's only aborting there's possibly a chemical variable that's causing this, or the substrate is just really messed up. Is doesn't look really colonized, unless this is what popcorn looks like in general (sorry -- never done popcorn -- someone else????)

I was going to say dried seed? My CC's rice cakes had some of that, but they turned out fine.

how was the quality of the popcorn. i.e. were there any impurities in the mix that could explain for the darker color. Sometimes birseed looks like that when fully colonized befacuse it will be all white except for certain areas pressed directly against the glass. Wait it out before casing probably.

That is exactly what is going on. I AM using WBS. That isn't popcorn. I guess these little things come up that is never mentioned in any teks/logs. Thats why this SPORT is so ill.

Well i cased a couple of jars today... (not the one in the pic) and i they will turn out well. I had some colonized WBS left over in one of the jars (about half a quarter pint) so i made a little mini casing with a thick bottom layer of 50/50 and thin top layer of 50/50. In between i used about half an inch of crumbled wbs. I wonder if the mini will fruit. HA I wonder if any will fruit.
