Scary Gray contam, need help
    #4143489 - 05/06/05 07:47 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hey all, after cold shocking and rolling 4 of my cakes after their first flush all 4 have come down w/ conntam. It appears to be a white cob-web like whispy stuff that in its maturity turns into longer tendrils with black/gray droplets on the tip, in the faq I believe this is known as Pin Mold. From a glance, it looks like carpeting has attatched to my cake near the base.

Sorry for no pics, i broke my camera.

My question is, are the cakes all a loss or can I cut or attempt to repair? The shitty part is that all 4 jars have pins that are now growing on contam cakes.

Probably a good idea to toss them. Some black molds can be nasty and keeping them around is probably spreading more spores that could infect later stuff. If its small areas and just on the surfrace i guess you could try and cut them away.

Used to boil a pot of a water on the stove. Cover with a plater till it cools. Poor some h202 and dunk in that with never any contam problems.

Yeah, I think we are going to "attempt" to cut them, place in a seperate terrarium and experiment. After discovery we changed the perlite and Isypopl'd the entire terrarium before replacing the remaining cakes.

thanks for that dunking tek I will definately keep that in mind, seems very promising.
