Contam or not? With pictures
    #2100693 - 11/13/03 08:52 AM (17 years, 3 months ago)



Is this picture of my friends casing contamination? There is no strainge smell coming from it but the color does not look right. Please tell me it is not, they finally started pinning. Or if it is, please tell me there is something that can be done to fix it.

I can't see anything. It looks extremely dry to me.

Either dry or with mold but i tend to agree with Joshua. It looks like bruising due to being dry.

It has dark green and almost blackish spots on it, also the casing is pulling away from the sides. My friend poured salt on it in spots in hopes of fighting it. Is it ruined? Should my friend wait until the first flush and cut into the casing looking for mold or should the whole thing just be tossed at this point?

Take another picture.

Can the green/blackish spots be described as blue bruising like you might see on a mushroom stem?

The casing pulling away from the sides is an indication of dehydration.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"
