How can you tell the different between a "Wetspot" contamination vs. just having too much moisture resulting in a wet spot? I have tried the BRF tek and the bottoms of the jars seem to have accumulated moisture to varying degrees. Is this normal water settling where perhaps it was too moist or am I growing bacteria in the bottom of the jars?
I know there are some similar threads asking this question already but most of them are old and the pics are gone. :-(
Not to hijack this thread, but I feel as though it falls in the same category. If you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated. So to may dismay, it appears that one or two of my rye jars have bacteria. It appears to be a milky white liquid that appears on and around individual grains or groups of grains that previously all looked dry on the outside but now have turned somewhat soaked looking. to reiterate, it is small groups of, or single grains. also the myc seams to be avoiding those areas sometimes, but my other jars that showed minimal signs of that have seamingly overcame it and fully colonized. I'm hoping that is is just mycelium that got too moist from condensation and has broken off when shaken and stuck to the sides of the walls and small droplets of this milky substance here and there. I have quarantined the two jars for now after shaking them. like i said, other jars are now 100 percent and showed slight signs but overcame, im just concerned it is bacteria due to the slow growth of these last two showing signs.
the last photo was some days ago and is of two of my three fully colonized rye jars and a pf as well. Mush Love - Demitrifruit
