Contam?
    #2702207 - 05/19/04 06:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Alright i dunked and rolled my cakes and now about 2 weeks later i am noticing very small spots of green on the bottom of my cake. The thing is is that none of it is actually on the cake and is just on the outer parts of the vermiculate. Ive only been spraying it with h202/water should i try scraping that verm off and see what happens or is my whole cake contaminated.

I think it's a good idea to remove anything green, then peroxide-treat and hope for the best. Visible green is never a good thing to keep around. It may still come back after treatment.

How bout just blue, and then blue that spreads. Is that ever a sign
of a contam or is that just a sign of a bruise and dehydration.

It could be but there are also blue contaminants.
You should make the q-tip test. Grab a q-tip soak it with h2o2 and rub the affected area. If the q-tip has attached spores or show any color, then i could say you're dealing with contaminants.
Otherwise, just let the cakes do their job, take some pics if you can.

One more question... my last good cake i think started developing a contam (green coloration). The thing is when i dunked my cakes i forgot about these 3 and left them in for 2 1/2 days. Just wondering if the water for that period of time killed parts of the mycelium and thats why contams are developing. Started to get some primo too... growing gone bad.

Most probably, yes.
