As I was examining a few of my WBS jars for mycelium spots, I came across 3 jars that seemed foggy. The top of the jar was completly white and seemed like there was a haze inside the jar. I shook the jars around redistributing the mycelium since there was a large build up and I wanted to speed the growth up a bit.

After the shaking of each jar I noticed on the inside walls of the jar there was a milky white substance. I can only assume its mycelium. May my WBS have been too wet? Thats only 3 out of 24 quart jars i've done. THe rest are fine, they are showing several growth spots around the jars.

Any thoughts?

well, pics always help, but isolating the jars was a good idea on your part.

From the sounds of it to me, it sounds like some mycelium that just got stuck on the glass, that happens sometimes. Possibly waited a little too long to shake the jars.

Keep them isolated and keep an eye on it. If it is a contam, you will know for sure within a few days. GL To Ya.
