Contaminant
    #3105986 - 09/07/04 11:52 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hey i've read through the fact already but I am still not certain about something. I ordered a 12 pack of presterilized and filled pint jars from a reputable site. The substrate is mostly colonized now but the jars have a little bit of condensation infront of some of the colonized substrate. However, it is in all the jars and the growth still looks white and otherwise fine. Could this be bacteria or is there just a litte bit too much water in there or something? How can I make sure it is safe?

Condensation is perfectly normal as is a little amber mycelium piss sometimes. :wink: Figured that may be your next question down the road so I thought I'd answer it now :laugh: :wink: GL and Welcome bluelight

What exactly is mycelium piss? Btw thanks for the help everyone. However, if it actually is contaminated with bacteria I will smell it when i open the jars right?

Dont smell the jar and dont open it up untill you are 100% conoloized becuase you will risk contams and all kinds of bad things. Mycelium piss is a bi-product just waste from the myclium its really nothing to worry about unless its really heavy it will stall jars thats a sad thing. Just flip your jars at 50% or so and that should take care of any gas exchage that may be needed. you just dont want to starve it.

EVERYTHING I SAY OR DO IS FAKE, IM A COMPULSIVE LIAR, sorry for any confusion this makes.

Cracking the lids loose a bit or if you have holes in the lids that will suffice as far as gas exchange (no tape on holes either!). Your jars are not contaminated yet! :wink: Also a lack of gas exchange stalls jars not myc piss that is only an indication that the myc is consuming an IF excessive indicates poor to no gas exchange. So kick back and relax your doin fine! So far :wink:

Myc piss is exactly what it sounds like. It's a byproduct of metabolism.

If you do have bacterial contamination you will smell it. I'm not advising you to stick your nose right down into it and take a big whiff, but simply crack the lid and smell it from several inches away. The smell is quite strong.

Your jars are fine so don't open until Christmas! Or Birthing time whichever comes first then you can smell. :wink: It's just condensation no reason to introduce any action on your part :laugh:
