OK I have ten jars that are just about done. One jar has a dark yellow something growing in the jar. I'm not sure if it's myc or some kind of nasty mold or bacteria etc etc. If something is contamed does it stink? :rasta:

I'm gonna move this to the contam forum for you.

I've never seen a dark yellow contam...personally.

Maybe MAIA or someone can help you out.

Pics would be great :wink:
Anyway, if you smell something like a nasty sweet smell, then it probably is yeast or bacterial contamination. But not all contamination emanate a distinct smell.
You should isolate the bad jars from the good jars, or else cross contamination might occur. You can do this by putting each suspicious jar inside an individual plastic bag and closing it.
Have patience and wait. If you don't see any mycelium growth or if any contaminated spot grows, then you should toss that jar.
