WBS jar smells like trich, but no green shit
    #2323389 - 02/11/04 09:35 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

i have 6 quarts of WBS going and 3 out of six were kicking ass....but the other 6 were slower.... 2 kind of caught up, but the last one seemed to of stalled out completely.  I took a whiff through the tyvek filter and it smelled just like the trich contammed jars i had with PF tek.

there is no way that wbs can get to stinkin similar to trich is there....i dont see any signs just a smell, i am almost sure its contammed, but i dont see nothing, shouldnt it be takin over like mad?  I shook it up...and its not chunked up like mycelium does, its more oozy lookin,  none of my other jars seemed to be so "oozy/slimy"...or have the stench, so i got this one just chillin in my warm bathroom away from the others in the incubator hoping for signs

i think i am in denial :crying:

Probably yeast or bacterial contamination. Bacillus is well know to produce this slimy substance, although you can't see any color, it is there.
It will get worst everyday. Forget about that jar, sorry ....

Oh well, shit happens. Plan on tossing it out, but keep it around for a bit and closely observe what happens. IMO it's a good idea to know the biology of a contaminated cake so you know what to look for in the future.

yup, i tossed that fucker out about an hour ago, none of the other jars smelled like that or stopped growing, so i figured it had to be a contam.  as long as i get 4 out of 6 i will be happy, 5 would be better, but if another one falls....shit happens.  fucking bacteria. YUCK.  hehe...when i was dumping it out, there was a couple nice chunks of mycelium in there, so i caught them and smashed into the middle of it and took a whiff....man i love that smell.  :grin: the rest smelled like shitty ass mold.  :mad:

thanks for the replies you guys, peace
