question about bacterial contamination
    #2257738 - 01/20/04 11:12 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

(This is basically crossposted from Cultivation)

I've seen it posted that cakes which have been contaminated (in this case a cake which developed a patch of sour rot that was later overtaken by mycelium) often won't fruit and if they do you're not supposed to eat the mushrooms just in case. Well, a question arises:

Do they not fruit because the bacteria damaged the mycelium somehow, or because that bacteria might still be present in the fully colonized cake? I ask because I have a PF cake like this and I'm thinking shredding it to make corncob spawn.

Both are possible.
Anyway, i wouldn't use that mycelium. If the contamination is still there, it might spread to the spawned jars.
