Does anyone know if this normal?
    #4609740 - 09/01/05 08:25 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I just had my first Inoculation, I am very nervous about contamination so I split up 15 jars in to four batches. So one bad apple doesn't ruin them all. I split up the 15 jars with B+ strain and the Thailand Lipa Yai stain. I am putting the 4 batches in 4 different locations. 1: In Rubbermaid in a trash bag in a cabinet above my frig. 2:Same as before but in a spare room with AC closed raped in a blanket. 3: Same as before (Rubbermaid, trash bag)in between the box spring and comforter in that same spare room. and finally 4: same as before but in a close were the hot water heater is.

My big question is after I sterilize the jars I put the jars into Rubbermaid containers as quick and clean as I could so that I could immediately start sterilizing another batch. When I went back to the jars after they cooled I opened the Rubbermaid containers to smell a little germination smell in all of the Rubbermaid containers. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? Really nervous it's screwed up so ideas and input is appreciated.

A germination smell? I don't really know what that is, but given that this is your first grow, I doubt you do either. Can you explain it a little better?

I bet it's just the smell of the substrate, Brown Rice Flour I presume?

If it doesn't smell rancid, sickeningly sweet, like rotten apples, or like vomit you should be fine. They should smell a little like, well like what they are...

I would describe it as like a fermentation smell. I steamed the jars any were from 1 hr to 1 1/2 depending on the batch. Had tap over the hole so don't think water got inside. Any answers for me?

Is this for cakes, or are they grain jars? Sounds like grain smells imo. If so, did you do a 24 hour soak? and/ or a simmer?

If it is healthy, it will smell like the liver of a newborn llama...


It sounds like you need to watch a little longer...

dude i dont know why you are doing all this crazy stuff to the jars...just do the TiT incubator. It is like a dream! remember you want some air exchange from the holes and you need the temp around the jars to be 80 cuz the inside is a bit more warm. (giving you the ideal temp 82-84) TiT can incubate all 15 of your jars safely and the correct way!

fermentation huh, perhaps a little like sake? That's what BRF/verm always smelled like to me. It's been an incredibly long time since I've even seen a cake, but I can smell it now. If it smells a little like sake, your fine. Regardless, I bet it's fine. Go ahead and shoot them if you haven't.
