Can colonized grain still be contaminated?
    #3122919 - 09/11/04 06:17 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Recently I attempted to make my own spore syringe. It didn't work. Out of about 12 jars, and 4 myco bags only 4 jars grew without contamination that was "visible." The others showed signs of sliminess on the grain, and this invisible contamination stopped any mycelium from growing except maybe in isolated spots (when you shook the jars to spread the mycelium that were growing, that too died.) Well now I have 4 jars that look like they have healthy growth. I'm done growing for quite some time so I want to give the jars away to a freind who wants them. I worry however that even though the mycelium looks good that there could be bacteria living in there anyway; I don't want her to get sick. Should I just toss the jars or does the healthy mycelium indicate that there isn't any cross contamination?
