Yeah, but that smell...
    #24705444 - 10/12/17 08:36 PM (3 years, 6 months ago)

So got my substrate from a vendor (second time I’ve purchased from them), opened it up and dumped it in the tub. The first thing I notice is it smells like shit. The last batch didn’t really. It wasn’t offensive at all. Smelled like dirt. And in fact, once everything was mixed in, (spawn and all), it smelled more of shrooms than dirt or manure. This stuff though, it smells like broken down manure. (I know. I know that’s what it is. I get it.) But it just seemed a little off. I (maybe foolishly) went ahead and mixed the spawn in and now it smells like shitty shrooms.

Besides the fact you guys are gonna grill me for buying pre-made substrate shipped halfway across the country, I’m just wondering if anyone has this and if I’m already dead in the water. I mean, unless someone rings in and says ‘Yep, that’s an issue. You’re screwed.’ I guess I’ll psh forward anyways. *insert shoulder shrug* MOD EDIT...OK:shrug:

Sub was mailed on Tuesday morn, got it this afternoon. Remaining sub went into the freezer (I ordered a lot.)

I used to buy pre pasturized bags of substrate to make things quick.
Smell should be good indicator of a good or bad batch.
You didn't describe super funk smell, just "manure" strong smell correct?

You should probably re-pasteurize the other substrate you have, before you ever use it.

I've ordered a substrate from a sponser on here before and the first time it smelled really good, like composted shredded wood and dirt hardly no manure smell. The second time I ordered the same stuff, it smelled less like the good smell and more like poo, not horrible, but could totally tell it smelled a little pooey. Mushrooms turned out great both times. If it's a sponser from this site, I probably wouldn't worry about it all that much. You could always call or contact them and just tell them your concerns and see what they say.

Just more active bacteria. As long as it's still the beneficial kind :tongue:
