contaminated jar question
    #3324899 - 11/05/04 04:35 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I've got four jars that I colonized with Amazonian, and all four are starting to show signs of contams, about an inch from the bottom. But the myc at the top still looks good. I was wondering if I could take the myc from the top and transfer it without contam problems from the bottom. Any help?

You could, it might work, but I wouldn't try to use it to inoculate grain. Maybe bulk; No guarantees. If it's a bacterial problem, and it is ONLY at the bottom, your chances are better. If it's mold, it's really not worth the risk. Mold can be throughout a jar, even if you only see the colors in a few spots. It's similar with bacteria, but if you're transfering to bulk and the spawn REALLY looks clean it might work out. The best thing, of course, is to try to figure out what the problem is and correct it. When done properly, very few jars should go bad. Since all four of your jars are 'bad', it implies something fundamentally wrong. So I wouldn't recommend playing around with them. There are potential toxin issues, allergy issues that you really should take seriously. Having said that, should you choose to try it out anyway, please be overly-careful manipulating the material.
