Yeah, they're supposed to smell like brown rice flour or birdseed or whatever you used.
If it smells rotten or sour, then that's probably trouble ! Smell is a good indicator of contamination. Most poisonoius nasties smell bad to us humans, who have been selected (by death!) to dislike poison (except maybe alcohol -hic-).

Sometimes, my jars will smell like sour vermiculite too, and if I am just worried as hell, I open them up for a nanosecond and sniff the substrate (under the foil of my Ramsey seal).  Many times I have found a terrible smell that spelt doom, but sometimes I was just being paranoid, and the jars were OK. 

Nuking jars in micro sounds nice...but for your first jars what kind of steralization did you use?  None?!!!  If none, then you don't stand a chance in hell.:shocked:
