What do you guys think?
    #3352109 - 11/12/04 04:34 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

About a week ago i yanked 5 jars out of my incubator because they had an odd smell to them, similar to sour milk. and i put them in a shoe box to see what would happen, i like to see the molds and such to get familiar with them. so anyhow i open up the shoebox today to take a look and they seem perfectly normal and they have all started to grow mycelium, but alot slower then they would in the incubator. they still have that sour smell to them but everything looks fine, do you think it would be ok to transfer them back to my incubator or should i wait longer to see what happens.

I'd say junk them. It could be a fermentation smell you get going on. Either way, everything I've ever heard is that weird smells are bad. I had a couple of jars do the same thing your talking about. I tried washing them with h2o2 and water really well. No matter what I did I couldn't get them to grow right afterwards. Maybe someone else has had this and had better luck though.

I would wait that smell is bacterial contam most likely. Does the substrate look slimey or wet to you at all? Yeah like that link noodlesalad gave you that's what I was thinking I've seen it with WBS but not BRF.
