yup mad eup a few jars of popcorn soak about 24 hours then simmered then pc for 90 minutes at 10psi.. everyhting looks good..well every popcorn jar i have done seems to grow nicely using karo. my concern is every jar has grey growth popping up? but then i see white growth with it..im just afraid that the popcorn is getting contams. its a fuzzy grey growth seems to spread really fast...compared to my wbs jars i've done this seems like contams. wbs jars were nice and white..but having no exp in popcorn ..hard to say.

have not had any problems with popcorn/karo. i pc at 15 psi for 90-120 mins. perhaps there is a problem with how you are pcing? what filters are you using for your jars? how are you inoculating the jars? from the sounds of it you have definite contams. fast growing grey fuzz is a clear indication.
i have been using some fairly ghetto tek for inoc. but still have had no contams. the last possibility would be a bad spore print or syringe.

good luck with future endevors.

I found in the early stages of colonization that popcorn can take on a funny color. In my own experience, I was worried about a red color that would appear on some of the popcorn as it was colonizing, but I did a search and found that was perfectly natural.

I'd let it colonize further before tossing it, just to see if it really is a contamination.

My popcorn jars sometimes have a greyish growth that turns white and fluffy later, I would just keep the jars and see how they turn out.

Never had contams with popcorn but one time, and that's because i used a print that had contam on it.I'm having problems getting popcorn to fruit.I'm trying it again but this time i soaked and simmered the corn in coffee and Karo,I'm still waiting for the results.So far colonization is going well.
