Oh No!! Contams!!!
    #3349966 - 11/12/04 03:59 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone else had problems with contamination of pf cakes after the first or second flush?  After my my first flush, I did a dunk tek with 3 cakes and lost one to fuzzy white stuff and one more after the second flush.  The only reason i can think of is dirty water used in the dunk tek.  But it was freshly bought distilled water.  And i used enough lysol in the air to kill small animals!!
Please Help!!!!! :eek:

The contamination looks like EXTREMELY fluffy myc. and grows super fast! It took over almost a whole cake in less than a day. Whats happening to my babies!?!?

Awww, sorry to hear that man. Your babies are getting contaminated, and if you have any more mushrooms growing on the infected cake, i'd harvest em for sure. Was probably either the water or air around the cakes when dunking.

Dunk in H2O2/H2O mixture. And also, afterwards fan a whole bunch. I don't like having standing water anywhere.

It could have been myc. Should've taken a picture of it.

Contam spreads very quickly and often through air. You need to check very often and throw away contaminated ones or isolate them quickly. You also need to clean the pod and everything in it.

Older cakes are less resistent to contam. Each flush makes the cakes(and casings) more susceptable to contaminations. One of the reasons why I don't push beyond 3rd flush for PF cakes/casings.

I buy peroxide by cases. Make sure you clean everything. Good luck.

Sam1912 Did you mean each flush makes them less susceptable?

Thanks for the replies

Didn't I say it the right first time?

no. more flushes, higher chance of contam.
