How long before contams rear their ugly little heads?
    #2890599 - 07/14/04 06:17 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Ive got a jar that I never PC'ed. I stuck my fingre in it last night to purposly grow some contams (so I know what they look like). They exploded over night. COb web mold already covers 25% of the jar.

Ive also got 6 jars that are 5 days old with no contams. Am I in the clear?

It sounds promising. Incubating jars for a couple of days can unmask contams earlier. Also, it can sometimes be a week or so before you can see some contams [if only a single endospore survived, etc.]. The next contamination source is the innoculating step, but being sure about the sterility of jars beforehand is helpful. Best of luck!
