Think this will work?

A few of my jars were getting nice and fuzzy, when suddenly I looked at the jars and I saw a few yellowish/orangish patches in a few of the jars. Not to mention they smelled REALLY sour.

Naturally I yelled contam and tossed a few. Well I ended up throwing 3 away, but I have a jar that's about 60% molded orver and it looks good and healthy but it has a slight sour oder, since this is my first time growing, is that a normal smell?

What I ended up doing was;
I cold shocked for about 15 minutes then transported it into the terrarium. I set a bright light on it for about 15 minutes to try and trigger pinning. Do you think it will finish inoculating in the humid terrarium? What should I do?!?!!?! Help!$@$

Dump it.
Start anew, sterilize in the PC for 45 minutes or in a covered pot for 1 1/2 hours. Let cool in the PC/pot.

this is the typical 1st try and didnt sterilize properly, its cool though. Happens to everyone once. either 1. leave it in a shelf somewhere for a week and see if it finishes, or if you wouldnt want to eat a part of it throw it out. Either way I suggest starting over with new jars.
