I have sevrel pf style subsrrate jars that are 75-95% colinized with mycilium... only problem is tha some of the cakes have just the smallest amounts of contamination at the top of them. just bellow the dry vermiculite layer. It seems ashame to waste the entire cake (i.e. throw it away) when so much of it is healthily colinized with mycilium and so little of it is contaminated. Couldnt I just cut the cake in half well away from the contaminated area and throw the contaminated half away. And then case the good half so it could cotinue to grow and eventualyt fruit?

What sort of contamination is it?

Where there's skill, there's a better way..

I have used contaminated cakes (after cutting away the contams and an extra half inch) in casing and starting rye jars. The rye jars have a MUCH higher chance of carrying the contamination on than the casing. I've had about 75% success with the casing ( I just used wet verm to give less of a nutrient rich environment for contam) getting up to 4 flushes this way. The rye jar success is only about 10 to 20 percent depending on the contam.

How can you go wrong if its free?
