Help! Wet spot contam?
    #25884126 - 03/19/19 07:49 PM (1 month, 5 days ago)

Help! Is this wet spot contam? I did have a small amount of excess moisture due to inadequate draining of my WBS or could it simply be just extra water in the jar that the mycelium cant take in?

Ain't that just the way.

Looks bacterial, and potentially mold as well

There is no smell to it though. Does smell not always determine the presence of wet spot?

How are you smelling it without opening it if it isn’t fully colonized?

I've heard in many places you can still smell wet spot even if it is fully sealed just by giving the top a good sniff

Usually you can only smell if you shake it unless its very bacterial, visual confirmation is easy though, that is not how jars should look.
