Can someone give me an Experienced Oppinion
    #4506471 - 08/07/05 11:07 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok I read the contam. FAQ's and I'm pretty sure one or more of my cakes may be contaminated. I have 6 jars 4 are almost 100% colonized but I've seen growth stop within the past couple of days. 2 jars never colonized too much they were straggling from the beginning though. But now they haven't moved in like a week. I seen a small lime green spot in one of the jars. So I'm pretty sure that's a contam. But I'm concerned about my other jars I seen no discoloration (other than the mycelium in spots are a yellowish white but that's not out of the ordinary form what I hear) BUT! there is a smell. Its not a bad smell actually its kind of a sweet caramel smell. Almost cakey. Is this anything to worry about? I'm really concerned about my remaining jars because they are sooo close! If someone could give me their experienced opinion on whats going on here this is my first grow, its would be greatly appreciated.

Thx,
TwIsTeD

You should post pictures. I think it would much easier for someone to give a strong opinion with a visual.

Any sweet or sour smell is contaminants. Mushroom mycelium smells like fresh mushrooms. Anything that smells like your garbage can is bacterial contamination.

Try separating non smelling jars from the others. That smell really indicates contamination, probably yeast or bacterial contamination.
Forget about fighting it while inside the jars. Bacterial usually wins.
