if it's only 1 jar it's a contam.. i think that guy thought you were referring to the fungus-y smell which should be coming from all the jars..

ps.. if you do know it is for sure contaminated, you might wanna stop sniffing it all the time. unless you enjoy growing live cultures in your lungs heh

take a kitchen mushroom.. the button kind, and smell it.. if this is what yur jar smells like, then the stink is most likely the mycelium. and ya it smells good, but i dunno if it smells like purdy gurls
peace

Is it greasy in appearance? Usually fruity smells are associated with bacterial contamination.

No mold, no unusual appearances.
Im beginning to think it is the mushroomey smell and its just a little different then im used to..since its in wet jars of substrate and is not increadibly strong (compared to a giant bin of mushrooms.... yeah i work at a pizza place so i know what a gigantic bin of mushrooms smells like heheh)
Like i said..this jar is considerably farther along then the rest, so I guess that would be a clue as to why it would smell stronger than any other jars.

Sorry Im retarded =)

If it's a grape type of fruity smell, you could have Pseudomonas aeruginosa running through the substrate [bacteria]. It might not be very strong, but the odor is pretty distinct compared to other bacteria.

I raise the Titanic, hell I'm barely older than this thread. I started my first grow with spawn bags (3x1 lb bags, one went moldy another hasn't done anything after a month) noc'd with flowhood MS syringes. I moved it to a compost monotub the other day, as I have no point of reference I must ask about the smell of le mycelium. It smelled clean and wholesome, like a fresh sock but for your nose. It looked clean and free of contams, bruised light blue from any breaking up, and took a couple days shy of a month to fully colonize.

So I have to ask le community, what do y'all think myc smells like? I noticed a very slight sweetness, it reminded me of fruit loops cereal. It wasn't the forefront of the smell but rather subtle. Like how in a forest the air is so fresh it's almost sweet. What do y'all think? It only milked up on the sides where the myc was pushed against the bag but fuzzy and healthy anywhere with breathing room, so I don't believe it went bacterial.

As I said, first timer, I have no reference to base off of so apologies for putting the same questions in the rut.

Hey man, I would have answered you but like you said the thread is  almost as old as you are haha. I didn't really expect someone to post in it and I lurk around more privately so I didn't really expect someone to talk to me on a post.

Hope you got some help.  How did it turn out?  Guessing it was probably fine if it was colonized at normal speed. What I didn't realize back then was my jars were very stunted and took a long time to fill out. I would have known they were contaminated with a little experience if only because of how slow they developed.I think that was my very first time with BRF jars 20 years ago. Too bad I lost them like most people do their first time!

Feel free to PM me any time.  :-)

If you aren't using a face mask in these trying times then you're living on the edge.

Times change, you have allergic reactions, you get old and your immune system sucks. Definitely not as eager to sniff contaminates after the couple decades from that post.

Haha, and on the topic of face masks, I wore a respirator and tyvek suit into the market a few days ago due to currently having a compromised immune system.  Probably overkill but you know... if you got it, may as well use it.  I got some great looks though.  I'm sure some old lady posted me on the next door app with some fantastic gossip. 

How far I've come from,  ehh what? Face mask?
