Early contams!?
    #2942047 - 07/29/04 09:53 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Howdy, 5 days ago I put together a bunch of pint jars using verm/brf and tasmanian/ecuadorian spores. I've done this many times with 1/2 pints and had close to perfect results. This time around I was especially careful to keep everything sterile...however now it appears there are contams on my jars just 4 days after innoculation. A bunch of the jars have greenish color forming where the mycelium has started colonizing and on one jar there is a very small black dot. Is it too early for me to be concerned, or is it possible that this early in the colonization process contams can start to take over?

hmm contaminated syringes... is there anything i can do about that? like maybe tell the people I got them from and see if they can replace them for me? I'm going to give it another week or so just to make sure its contamination, but this has never happened before and it doesn't look like its supposed to as of yet really... I should mention that i did put a lighter flame to the syringe tips before innoculating the jars... i guess a better telltale sign would be to see if the contams are happening with the jars injected by one syringe or the other, poo poo =/

i like to tap larger bottoms because they ripple better and its sorta mesmorizing

You don't have enough elements to say the culprit was the syringe.

Yes, this is a good way to help knowing what went wrong.

Did you let it cool down or wipe it out with a alcohol cotton swab before inoculating ?

I let it cool down, didn't wipe with alcoholed cotton. It does appear now that all of the jars that became contaminated came from the same syringe. 12 jars innoculated with a different syringe are all doing fine, maybe 4-5 look alright from the other 12... All 24 of the jars were put together at the same time under the same conditions, so the fact that only jars that were contam. had been innoculated by one of 2 syringes would tell me that the syringe had something to do with the problem, whether that's my fault or not would be the greater mystery i guess hehe.
