Cow poo smelling bad in fruiting chamber
    #26794140 - 06/30/20 11:57 AM (1 month, 4 days ago)

Hi there,

So I had this really dry cow poo I picked a couple of months ago and let it dried in a box. I shredded it with my hands the best I could, mixed with a bit of vermiculite and hydrated with water. I then pasteurized it at 70 degrees for 90 minutes (i break the thermometer in the middle of the process so i continued without measuring the temperature but checking by eye), let it cooled down and mixed 2:1 with colonized rice (1 part of colonized grain, 2 parts of poo) and prepared 2 trays.

So far so good, and ZERO SMELL, it was like working with soil, or worm humus.

Placed the trays in a fruiting chamber.

24 hs later I opened the container to mist for humidity and this really shi**y smell comes out, concentrated poo smell almost melted my face.

My question is: is it ok to have some smell some at this point? is it bad sign?

I'll wait a week or so to see if its colonizing but it surprised me the sudden smell when there was nothing in the begining.
