Is this brown stuff contamination
    #4073468 - 04/19/05 06:36 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Noticed this brown stuff in one of my jars yesterday , on the opposite side there is healthy myc growing. Thankfully this is the only one of my jars showing this stuff , is this stuff contamination?


Thanks

Nobody knows what this stuff is? I checked last night and it doesnt seem to be spreading or anything.

It is very hard to tell..the pic quality is bad. Judging by what I see it looks bad. If it's powdery looking and brown like I think it is, throw it out.

Sounds good , thanks for the diagnosis. This is the only one out of 22 jars to show this stuff so I guess I have nothing to complain about , lol.

The dude at spores direct for got to label them so there either B+ or cambo , not sure which ones are which.

Looks like I spoke too soon :frown:  , I checked them this morning and seemingly overnight 3 were hit with black/green mold. I have removed them and dumped the contense in the woods behind my house , I just got done boiling the 3 jars for about 20min to kill any of the mold that may have been left.

20 mins is not enough at all for boiling. I boil mine for an hour and haven't had a single contam...yet.

This was just a preemptive strike to make sure I dont inhale any of the mold , they will still be pressure cooked for an hour before inoculated once again.
