Ruined by blue mold for the fourth F'ING time in a row!
    #4488411 - 08/03/05 03:54 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

First three times was with cracked corn, this last attempt was with WBS, both were PC'ed for 90 minutes at 15psi.

I did a test jar this time, and it did not get contaminated, while both of the inoculated jars did, but only where the spores landed. At first they was nice fuzzy white colonization... but they were all taken over by blue mold.

There was no mold at all in the third jar (control jar, that wasn't inoculated) but it had taken over about 70% of the white colonization that I could see on the 2 other jars.

Now I ask you, shroomery... wtf!? Was my spore syringe contaminated?

I used the heat sterilization method for the needle, with a 5,500F propane flame.

It must have been the solution that was contaminated, since after shaking, the only places that had contams were on top of the mycelium, nowhere else in the grain.

Can anyone provide any insight into this one?

Sounds like the solution in the syringe was contaminated. If the mold popped up at the inoculation points and nowhere esle, i'd say that's a good bet.
