orange spot?
    #2461869 - 03/22/04 11:24 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone ever had a slight orange coloring on your cakes before birthing? I can't tell if it's a contam or just the myc mixing in w/ the brown substrate. It only has a 1 in. diameter and the jar is about 70% colonized w/ thick healthy mycelium. Any ideas?

the myc piss stuff gets a orange tint sometimes....youll know if its a contam...give it a few days and it will take over...youll notice a bad smell to when you birth it, but dont breath it in directly...whaft the air

Only time will tell.
As for now, wait and see. Report back if the spot grows.

yup i think it's just "myc piss" as you called it. It's been 3 days I think and it hasn't gotten any bigger. Thanks for your help man. Oh, by the way, what exactly is the mycelium excreting if it is "myc piss?"

It's a byproduct resultant of its metabolism. I really don't know about the chemical composition.
