Should I Be Concerned?
    #2070396 - 11/04/03 07:13 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I came down to look at my jars after I flipped them yesterday. I was quite dissapointed after I found that three of the jars showed signs, not of contamination, but of something wrong. Pictures would be the best way to go, but my camera is at a friend's, so i'll just try and describe it.

Almost like a blad ran though it. Dark dents that run vertically, they start midway up, and cover probably a 1/3 of the overall height. Like Theres the cake, all white and whispy, then a big black cut in the side.

The sight just speaks of death.

ANyo9ne ever see anything liken this? Are my 3 most fully colinized jars going to waste?

I would be VERY concerned.
Im still new at this but ANY growth other than white mycelium is BAD.

Hmmmm. Could it be a drop of liquid that slide down the cake ?
I'm saying this because you flipped the cakes, i dunno, just a thought.
Anyway, if you wait a couple of days and it grows, then it's definitely some kind of contamination.

These are the three worst. The first two are better pics, just because the last one is so bad you cant even see enough verm to make a comparison. Although these are the worst, pretty much all of my jars have this sort of thing to a degree.

It's sad but there's nothing you can do about those but toss them.

Okay, so those jars are kicked, but does anyone know why?
What that stuff was, why it happened, how I can keep it from happening next time?
