Casing cobweb contam?
    #3253037 - 10/19/04 09:34 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hello all.
Just tried my first casing using cakes that had been birthed for about 3 days...cakes are verm/brf and casing is verm. Two days after making the casing, some fuzzy stuff appeared on the top of the casing. I have no digital camera, but I found a pic of exactly what this looks like:

Is this the famous cobweb mold? And if so, should the casings be tossed? There are 2.
Thanks for the help!

well mycelium that isnt real strong,as in it just reached the surface may look like that,but if it doesnt convert to a real bright white within about a day then its cobweb....i had spots on my straw bins that looked like that then converted to a bright white which is mycelium..hope all works out though

does the fact that the white substance appeared after only 4 days have any bearing on what it could be?

This is a double thread, I wrote more on the other but those pics are cobweb, aerial mycelium doesn't extend to 1/2 an inch, let alone an inch. It's also thicker and whiter.

I read somewhere that if it is cobweb mold it will take over the entire jar in two days.
