Mycelium VS Contam.....Mycelium wins!...Question
    #3285629 - 10/27/04 07:16 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I had a jar of Orissa India and the top 1/4th or so of grain had a small contam on it. The contam looked like small bumps all over each little milo kernel.

Anyway, I took it out of the incubator to dump, forgot about it and a week later came back to find the mycelium colonized the entire jar and took over the small contam. You can't even tell there was anything wrong with the jar at all.

Question: Is this jar still good? Since the mycelium grew over the contam, that means the contam is dead, right?

I think I'm going to toss it but I'm still curious if it will work... :confused:

It doesn't mean the contam is dead really. I'm not sure how bad the contam is, but if it was me I'd probably still fruit it, just seperate from anything else I had going. Just to see how it goes.

You're not like the others. You like the same things I do. Wax paper, boiled football leather... dog breath. We're not hitch-hiking anymore, we're riding!

It'll be too much trouble to fruit it in a separate fuiting chamber and all that. It's just one quart of grain too...not enough to make a decent casing, and I wouldn't risk spawning it....
Anyone else?
