Possible WBS Contam?
    #3044054 - 08/24/04 01:55 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have been reading through "the mushroom cultivator" by Paul Stamets and it is talking about a kind of bacteria that will make your grain seem somwwhat oily in appearance but is accompanied by a rotting fruit kind of smell.

My jars of WBS seem to have slowed in colonization and look like either their is some water build up between the seed and the jars or the oily mess they are talking about in the book. There is no rotting fruit smell but more like a wet bird seed smell.

I don't have a digital camera so I cannot show any pics but any information anyone can provide would be just ducky.

Wait it out until you're ready to shake the jars. After shaking, it will become very clear if there's bacterial contamination. The 'wet' or 'oily' description is not a good sign, but best of luck;

When you say "very clear" what specifically should I look for to be sure ?

Usually within a couple of days the vast majority of kernals will start to look 'greasy'. It will also start to smell wrong.

yeah i went up and checked on it this morning and when i opened up the container the jars are in there was a strong odor

wasnt sweet or like rotting fruit but more like....i dunno rotten stuff

they have since been moved to another room away from the lab

sounds to me like they are now going to that great jar in the sky.

too bad too
