Killing Bacterial Infection?
    #2618504 - 04/29/04 10:18 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

  Here is my question ,and I hope it doesnt sound too dumb ,but given what I have seen I have to ask. A friend of mine had two brf jars that stopped colonizing just as the upper half or so of the jars were covered with what appeared to be myc that was very healthy. The jars were unusually dark on the uncolonized portion. Looked like there was no brf,just wet verm. After some time the jar began to emit a sweet aroma that was definately not shroomy so I advised him that it was probably a bacterial infection and they were most certainly doomed. He didnt want to here that and said he would just try and surgically remove the uncolonized section and try to salvage what was left. As I was about to tell him it wasnt worth trying a thought occurred to me. What if he grated the fully colonized half of the cake into  pasteurized horse poo and see what would happen. My hypothesis was that the same beneficial bacteria that kept the pasteurized poo disease free just might "clean Up" the colonized portion of the cake that was used to spawn it. Well, a week later the poo is colonizing well and there is no odor or evidence of any bacterial infection at this point. It smells shroomy and a little earthy just as it should. Could this be a viable means of saving a cake or do you guys think it is just a fluke?

Thats kinda what I think too,but why isn't there a distinct bacterial odor present at all? Maybe there is something that I dont know that I am missing. Is it likely for the bacteria to be still present without it's distinctive smell? I guess time will tell as it may soon develop again for all I know. We did leave some of the colonized portion of the cake attached to the dark uncolonized part in order to try and get a minimum amount of the bacteria in the transfer,but this wouldn't stand a chance if you just tried to fruit the good part IME! I guess we will know more when he tries to fruit the casing.

Yes, you can do that.
If it looks healthy, i'd say go for it .

Thanks MAIA, he'll be so glad to hear the news. The colonization does look very healthy and very rhizomorphic also! I didn't mention what the strain was in the first post (not that it really matters), but just in case anyone was curious it is Golden Teachers. I am very curious to see how they will fruit since,believe it or not ,I have never seen them growing before in person!

Thanks For The Help
MYKEY
