Good news (Dunk/pinning) and Bad (Contam?)
    #4496868 - 08/04/05 10:29 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

FINALLY!! Pinning! Thank the gods! I want to thank those who advised me that dunking would do the trick. I dunked my so called cakes 3 nights ago and BAM! Today, I have 5 little baby mushrooms peaking their heads out. I was worried b/c I've done so many things "wrong" that I didn't think I'd get anything more than a learning experience out of the whole thing.
Anyhow, for those who helped before, I hope you can help again. I have 12 half pint jars incubating right now in a Styrofoam cooler w/ a 50 watt aquarium heater keeping it right at 80 degrees. They were inoculated 5 days ago. I am experimenting with different
"tightnesses" on the lids, as well as inoculation sites (Middle vs. 4 corners due to the fact that I have real trouble squeezing 1/4 cc in a tiny hole). So anyways, a few of the jars that were inoculated in 4 corners have started to grow gray matter in there. Now, it looks like
a thin layer of myc in all ways except that it's not bright white. Should this be considered contamination or should i wait and see if it thickens up, getting more dense, turning white? Problem is with my last batch, instead of using BRF and verm, I used BRF and Perlite. That's what happens when you don't read directions.
I don't have a digi camera, so I can't post pics. However your best guesses would be appreciated.

Mycellium can fuzz up after dunking. Watch for it to spread quickly or change colors. You will be able to tell if its mold.

This is the only time I really feel alive.

Good luck, hope you get a great flush from that :smile:.
