What if I don't sterilize the casing mix?
    #3312049 - 11/03/04 12:48 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I followed a casing tek that used unsterilized 50/50, and one that used sterilized mix. One of my casings got green contamination and I tossed it. What should I do about the other casings that were in the fruiting chamber? Do they have a chance? What about the casings that used sterilize mix? Will they get contaminated? Finally, if one does get contaminated say, a week after I get a flush, is the previous flush toxic even though I didn't see any green when I harvested it? Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks!

Why are you cross posting? If you've asked a question already, dont post it in another category.

I cross-posted? Sorry, I didn't realize it. I don't see my post anywhere else. Maybe since I had two browsers open. But, is it safe to eat a mushroom if the casing became contaminated 4 days later after harvest?

Just for safty bro please avoid eating the mushroom. It could have had some internal contamination that didnt appear on the outside until just now. I would not risk it. If you see contamination of any kind dont eat anything that you harvested reciently off of that cake.

Yea, messing with contaminated spores/mushrooms is not good. Dont take the risk.

There is no reawson not to sterilize casing mixes. I had it in my head when I first began that it wouldn't matter, after a few failed attempts due to contam I started to follow sterile procedures. Fast forward to now and, voila, I have more shrooms than I know what to do with and its not a question of will it even make it to fruit or not. Sterilze everything, its worth the little extra effort in the beginning to be able to relax for the rest of the process.

I definetly agree with you there. With something like growing mushrooms dont take shortcuts.

How do you keep track of which mushrooms came from which casing? It was a great looking mushroom, it was then dried and thrown in a bag with lots of others, before the casing got contaminated.

Man... Thats a tough one. Check the stems for discoloring and mold. If you cant find it dont eat any of them unless their on the bottom/middle of the bag. Its not worth getting sick.

You could just buy some cheap glad-ware or something like it and simply label each container and fill it with the caps from a specific casing. I honestly think that unless the casing was ravaged by contam (as opposed to just starting a spot of contamination) that it would be unsafe to eat. How many people eat "unsanitary" shrooms that are picked in the wild, off of cow poop nonetheless (I know its natural, but you know its far from sterile!).
