What is this fluffy growth and golden flaking guys?
    #22529128 - 11/15/15 09:55 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Grains are milo/sorghum and got cube myc growing in quart jars.

After a few days, started getting this wispy looking growth on the top of the grains. Whatever it is, didn't tend to latch onto the grains like normal myc does and was grayer in colour. I suspected cobweb but it didnt grow rapidly so ruled that out.

This is the progression of growth over a 10 day period or so and what also looks to be some kind of golden flakes growing on the grains. The golden flakes seem to only be present near the top layer of the grains and are not present in my other jars with same grains/myc.
























Golden Flakes on Grains:


I believe it is inhibiting the myc growth at the point of contact as there is a clear line of division between the myc and whatever the unknown growth is.

Any input would be highly appreciated!

Thanks

the fluffy stuff is white mold
the gold flakes is a shit picture but it could be something like wild yeast candida albicans perhaps

I wouldn't throw it away just yet. To me it looks like mycelium. plus your jars are so far along that if it was mold it would have taken over the jar by now

and just to add if there's no gas exchange then the myc will fluff up like that

Haven't thrown it away just yet but it is concering to me. Not only the weird growth of it (not latching onto grains but rather growing around it) but it doesn't seem to 'connect' like the other myc patches have done so as exhibited in other areas of this jar and my other ones.

The 'golden flakes' also represent an anomaly in this jar out of the other 6 growing which I assume are clean.

How would you suggest I proceed with this jar?

I was going to shake the jar as it was about time to do so but wanted confirmation of what the top growth was before doing it.
