What could have possibly gone wrong?!?!
    #3164097 - 09/22/04 11:58 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

So afoaf had a bunch of pint jar full of rye with a bit of lime. Added water and pc. Injected spores through holes in lid. Let sit all stacked on top of each other in cooler. Colonization was slow. 2 months later they still are in the jars still trying to colonize. They smelled funny and looked rotten and gross. Some got contaminated. I figured what the fuck and had my friend case them cause fungi grows off rotten shit anyhow. He threw out the contam jars of course. It was now or never even though the jars didn't colonize 100%. So a week later a few trays had green stuff all over the casing layer. The colonization spread quickly after he cased them. I could tell the mycelium was sufficating in the jars. Eventually in the fruiting chamber they all got contams. One had a bunch of pins but was full of green so he threw them all in a hole in the woods and hoped for the best. I think because it was summer time and the jars were in a cooler that they must have been colonizing at 95-100 degrees farenheit. Not 82-84 like it should be. Do you think this was the main problem or what. I told him He'll have to wait till it gets cooler outside and then build a incubation chamber like magash to keep it a steady temp.. Any advise would be thanked. Sincerely Rudiger420

I'd say that is a good reason. A combo of high temps, poor gas exchange, perhaps a poor spore print/syringe....could be pretty much anything, but the temp is a good assumption if it was really that hot.
