hey, this is my first post on here... its my second time growing PF spores inside jars... my jars got contaminated but on one of them i managed to open the jar, cut out the contam, and reclose the jar. i had to open the jar at least 3 times to get all of the contam but it finally stopped coming back, after the contamination was all gone the mycellium grew very slowly (taking 5 days to move a quarter inch on the jar) and when my cake started pinning i birthed it. the sides of the jar were squished in and strandy (from the mycellium squeezing for water i think) but the top was very fluffy. the pins seem to be forming and making some progress but its going VERY slowly. could the cake still be contaminated even though i cant see or smell anything unusual? should i keep it going or just make some tea from the cake? any advice would be great
