Ripe smell
    #2859864 - 07/05/04 11:06 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

This is my first time tryin to make some shrooms. ive got 6 jars goin and they looked good till today i noticed a really ripe smell comin from my jars. i was wonderin if this was normal or is it some type of contam?? i used a double boiler with holes in the top one, used like a steamer, steamed them for an hour then when cool i innoculated them. they are growing good, then i noticed the smell comin from all the jars, what can i do about this in the futcher to eleminate this problem. thanks

do the jars look contamed?
the first time i smelled my jars i thought they were contamed too
good thing i waited it out
for a newb i would reccomend waiting it out until you see a more def. sign of either contam or colonization
until you can diferentiate on yr own

I never realy noticed any smell besides the smell of mushrooms. I imagine if you could smell any sort of contamination you would be able to see it sooner or later, too. Maybe, just wait and see what happens.

Sounds like bacterial contamination. I would seperate all the jars and find out which ones smell and discard them.
