What should casing smell like?
    #3330228 - 11/07/04 05:47 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I have just cased 3 jar's, with one layer of perilite, then vermiculite, then the broken up cakes, then more vermiculite all in a 8'' round tub. I took the lid of to let it breathe a bit and i noticed a sweet almost apple smell. I have did my best in sterilizing all involved ingredients and do not detect any contaminants. Is there any way of detecting cob-web mold from myclium. Thanks for the help.

plz. reply to my email @ hallowsirens@hotmail.com

I haven't cased with pure vrn before - I always use coir - but I fing that my casing/cakes usually have a slightly sweet smell. I would say inless the odour isn't overwhelming, they're probably alright.

As far as the myc/cobweb - it's sometimes hard to tell, but if you could provide a pic, then you might get better advice - I would also post any of the contamination related questions in the contamination forum.

I once accidentally left non-PCd substrate in a closed container for 2 days on the table. It grew fluffy pure white cottony like growths, and stank like rank old milk. Thats the only exp i have with smelling something I KNEW was bad. There wasn't even that much growth in it, but it was very strong smelling. I would imagine if the strength of the smell that you have keeps increasing, your prolly smelling a bad growth. If you smell your myclium before you case it, you will know what it should smell like. I pretty sure the smell shouldn't deviate much from it. And based on the strain, i don't think anyone can tell you how it should smell, unless they have the same strain.

I had a couple of contammed cakes that I tried to case a while back, broke all the contam off etc..

After 4 days, the casing smelled exactly like you put it, a slightly sweet but still acrid apple smell.

It was toast.

Slightly off topic here but.. Who thinks verm/brown rice flour smells and looks like oatmeal cookie batter?! I mean come on. Also, I'm thinking about tasting it next time to compare with oatmeal cookie batter.

Serious.. DAMN.. thats like my third batch that shitted out and had to be tossed..

What if i let it go until it spawned some mushrooms? Would i be able to tell for sure from them? (Say, if they had mutations etc.)

And also, is breathing bad cakes really bad for you.??
