Ok. This sucks.
    #4411010 - 07/16/05 09:39 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Wbs has contamed again and I've tried it differently everytime.

I've made the water content a bit dry, a bit to wet, I've soaked some longer, some less, some i've rinsed a Bunch, some i didnt rinse, some ive mixed with verm and some i didnt...

I pc-ed my bags for about 2 hours...When they came out they smelt a bit...the smell was barely there, rather faint, but it was there.

Now like 3-4 days later, that same sharp smell got way worse and omg, does it stink, lol...

Somehow water leaked out and got on the outside of the bag (was perfectly dry when i put it in the tit)....this smelt Rank As Fuck...When I poured h202 in the tit, it fizzed, and thats really not good.

Now I kind of how to fumigate my room, to ensure that future flushes will do well.

But before I completely Quit trying Wbs (still got like 10lbs left), I'd like to try and figure out Why it isn't working.

It always has the same smell and Myc. never grows in it.

I test that theory (myc. growing in my wbs) by throwing a cake in the bag (broken up) and damn.,...sure as fuck didn't do anything.

I'm considering pcing for another hour (3 total)...Rinsing to high hell (10minutes) then adding maybe a bit of a buffer...I'm thinking that it's acidic b/c myc. cant grow it in (hasnt yet n e ways lol)..but then again i don't see Any mold or anything...Just wbs, so it's really strange..well...any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I wasted about 8 hours of my life, PC-ing bags that went to shit....lol...DAMNIT.

Hmm...strange. I don't know what to say, as I'm inexperienced with WBS. No PC and all that...

Sounds like excess moisture is causing bacterial bloom. Big filter/patch spawn bags of wbs/grain have a tendency to do that, if they are overly moist. If you simmer your WBS, that often softens the seed/grain up, & IMHO - increaes the odds that bacteria can get a foothold - then - THRIVE.

I prefer a wide mix of seed/grain/rye - as spawm. At least to me - with a wide mix, some absorbs less moisture, some more moisture. The end result is - that some evens out others.

I have never used bags but I dont' have a problem with wbs. I might be thinking of something else but I thought somewhere here I read that if it has some kind of coating on it, that it can prevent mycelium growth. Don't take my word on that but it's worth a look.
