Contam or Mycelial Brusing?
    #26527622 - 03/10/20 05:45 PM (11 months, 10 days ago)

Hello Shroomery!
      G2G my first jars, and after first shake they aren’t looking very happy.  Would you say they’re contaminated or bruised?  Thanks!

Looks like contamination, grains look pretty wet too that's probably the problem

Thanks, worth holding onto them for a few days to see if it turns around?

Holding onto them for a few days isn't going to hurt anything as long as they aren't near your healthy jars. Sometimes the mycelium will take over the contamination, I have a jar that did exactly that this last time around, but it is rare. Chances are you've lost those, sucks man.

If you prepared your grains right there is no way that dark blue/grey thing can be bruising due to drying out at this stage (colonising inside a jar).

Once there is contamination in a grain jar, there can be no turn around because even if mycelium overtakes and isolates contaminant to prevent it from spreading, it will always be there. And once you spawn it to substrate it will be "freed" and dispersed throughout all the grains as you shake the grain and mix it into substrate(e.g. coir) and will come back with vengeance and ruin the whole box.

This would only be acceptable with PF BRF cakes because normally you wouldn't break them apart after colonisation thus leaving contaminant isolated.
