"Fermenting" smell in one jar
    #2071723 - 11/05/03 01:16 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I have one jar that I cased a few days ago. I noticed today that it has a kind of fermenting smell to it, but I see no contam and it basically looks the same as the others. Anyone ever come across this before?

Usually they are sweet smelling or sour smelling. Although I think I can relate to your smell. I would wait of course, we need not throw away your time and efforts yet, but isolate it from other growth. If it is alone right now then your fine. I would wait and see if it goes away or subsides. I've had some coco coir smell pretty funky a day after casing but end up fine. What does your casing consist of?

I just use straight vermiculite, I seem to get less contam that way. Yeah I guess all I can do is wait and see. It's not a particularly bad smell, just really different from what I'm use to

For the most part the only failures I've had have come from sour really horid smelling occurances. I'd definately wait it out. Did you sterilize the vermiculite? I like to boil my casing material for atleast 45 minutes prior to use. Although, I've had coco coir which was boiled for 1 hour, produce a green weedlike seedling after what I thought was sterilization.

That's yeast -- increase air exchanges and maybe decrease the humidity a bit if you want -- don't let it dry out, but it's better not to mist it unless you have to, until the yeast goes away.

yeast?  :wtf:

if a jar smells funky, pitch it. bacterial conatminations are usually not visible to the eye but will smell sour, or sort or sickly-sweet, or fermented like you're talking about.
