how can you tell the difference in the blueing from touching the mycelium cakes and the blueing from contamination??????

The easiest way is to swab the suspected area with a clean cotton swab (or similar).  If the color easily comes off onto the cotton, you probably have a mold problem; if the color stays on the cake, no worries...you just have bruising. :thumbup:
