weird smell
    #4171561 - 05/13/05 05:36 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

My cakes have been in the fruiting chamber for 2 days and I am starting to notice a strange smell from the cakes. when I first opened the jars two days ago they smelled just like fresh shrooms. The smell is kinda sour. Am I fucked or is this normal? The cakes look healthy,I cant see any contams

doesn't sound good, they should not smell sour. they could have a bacterial contamination that you just may not be able to see yet or may not be able to see.

Bacillus.. You should make sure it's only some of your cakes, and not all of 'em.. I had this problem w/6 cakes, removed the 3 stinkiest, and the others don't stink @ all now that the nasty ones are gone.

Also, I didn't throw away the stinky ones, have them in isolation, and am going to put them outside when it gets warm enuff. Diver told me that eating fruit from Bacillus infected cakes is no big deal: see http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/4138446/page//fpart/1/vc/1
