Contamned??
    #3692325 - 01/28/05 06:09 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've got 29 jars of WBS Colonizing in a TIT. @86 degrees. I opened it the other day and noticed a really strong smell coming out of tit. It smells like freshly simmerred WBS only stronger. I examined each jar and compared it to pics in the contam forum. everyone looks fine. Is this many jars in a 18quart TIT going to have a natural smell or should I be worried? This is the 4th day that they have been incubating and I noticed the smell on day 2 when I grabbed a seperate jar out of there. Thanks for any help

nope, 84-86F is ideal for incubation.

is the smell coming from when you opened you TiT or from opening a jar? keep a close eye on the jars, and if any of them have contams develop move them away from the others immediately.

plastic tubs will put off a smell when they are slightly heated, as will the substrate, and also the mycl. However at day 4 I doubt your smelling any mycl., at this point.
However this has just been my observation for the past few years.
Next time you go to the store pick up a new tub and take a wiph. You'll notice the same smell only much more faint.

The grain can certainly smell like grain and myc will smell like mushrooms. Along with stagnant air and the smell of plasitc and warm water (comming from between the tubs) and all that can smell weird. If you have a sour smell then you need to worry. Put your nose close to the top of your jars...you can usually smell the sour through the filters and such.

...but don't take a huge wiff, it can make u sick if contams are present, but if it's only day 4 or 5 that shouldn't be much of a worry

q: when you go to smell contamination, if you have some sort of filterpatch/polyeurethane, are you still at risk for mycotoxins created by airborne cont. i.e. penicillium?

I'm under the impression that the filter would block anything harmfull when you smell it. You should still be carful but I've smelled plenty of sour jars through the filter without issue. Now CLEANING contamed jars without wearing proper face mask/gloves and without proper washing right after can makeyou sick because then everything shoots into the air. You should wait for a more definitive answer if your really worried but I've done it dozens and dozens without ill affect (have gotten sick from airborn contams though before not wearing a face mask when cleaning).

Duh...what was I thinking...if the face mask stops it, so will the tyvek...so yeah

thanks for the info, I'll keep an close eye on all the jars. I did smell one of my new tubs that I bought and it does kinda smell like the TIT only fainter and a little less grainy. Thanx again, the shroomery rocks
