Whats the most jars you have lost in a contam epidemic?
    #2464101 - 03/23/04 04:46 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I just lost 85 quart jars to green mold and bacillus out of 115. I just was curious on how much other people have lost in a contamination event. I think i got them contaminted from too many g2gs and i used tyvek lids. Now im going back to regular jars lids, mycelium liquid and lots of lysol.

oof, thats a rough loss... one time my friend was making 8 cases of half pints and he used tap water (ours don't work for mushies, too much magnesium)... they colonized OK but never fruited... we threw them all out when they all turned blue

Yeah i used to only worry about bacillus (wet spot) but now i had a green mold attack. Im a little upset but oh well shit happens. Im still looking for a perfect recipe for WBS quart jars. I dont want to simmer. But everytime i do make jars i have at atleast half that get bacillus. I thought the tyvek would help get rid of the extra moisture but it probably contributed to the green mold.Im currently rinsing the seed and then i remove most sunflower seeds and then soak for 24 hours and drain for an hour in a colander. I pressure cook for 1 hour and sometimes for an hour and fifteen. Somebody help me. And dont say look at the WBS tek cause i look at all of them coming mycotopia, nansnook and shroomery. Im not a lazy newbie. thanks!

You seem to been doing the right procedure but g2g transfers can be a bitch sometimes.
Try using a bit of bleach mixed with the water you soak the grains with.
Anyway, how are you doing the g2g transfers, do you use a glovebox ?
