Results After 4 days
    #2294114 - 02/02/04 02:08 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

of 11 jars my friend had innoculated 4 eq, 3 b+, and 4gt.
Out of these, 4 EQ have contamed with that faint pink mold (i think there was mold in the syringe to begin with), 2 GT and 1 b+ have started forming pearly white myc.
He also found that grinding up the brown rice into powder with a blender did not speed up the growth of myc, (2-3 days its been now)

so now he is cleaning, sterilizing and re-using the contaminated jars, and innoculating them 3gt 1b+ since b+ takes a lot to colonize and GT seems to be the all-star strain in this batch.

we'll keep you posted :-)

P.S. Any Suggestions on how to hydrate the incubating cake? the ones he took apart seemed rather dry...

as long as you used the right ratio of water in the beginning and arent cooking them in the incubator they will be fine...

Also I think this would be better in the growlog if you are going to continue to post your progress and pics are always good too :laugh:

Daisy... Let that pinkish "contam" go for a few days. I have noticed, especially when I grow EQs that sometimes a faint pink can be seen right before the actually mycellium appears. I've had jars that started with pink spots and then had white fill in behind it, basically creating a white blotch of mycellium with a faint pink ring around it. I've eaten mushrooms off of these kind of cakes with no ill results. I don't know what the hell it is, but the healthy mycellium grows right over it. I'm not saying that you don't have a contam, but let them go a while before you make a definate judgement, since they were only 4 days along. I also advise that you let contammed jars go as long as your healthy ones (obviously separate them) just so you can see the different types of mold that will come out of it. This gives you a better background to identify contams with.

ah well my best friends birds dog's cat's grandma happened to dump out the 4 jars and start the process over with 2gt 1eq and 1 b+, if the eq does it again then grandma will assume its regular and will hopefully get a nice spore print off of it for future reference. :-)
