wtf is this??? (w/ pics)
    #4623955 - 09/05/05 09:59 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

so i looked in the contam FAQ and i didn't find anything that looks like my jars. what the hell is this shit in here? i opened one up and it smells like soy sauce. the jars that haven't been inoculated smell the same. i followed the pf tek and used brf, verm. and water. i threw in a dab of cracked wheat. after mixing the jars, i threw em in a pot of boiling water with the lids on (no holes punched) and let them settle over night.

as for the innoc., i used a liquid myc. syringe that i used from a previous expedition of mushroom growing.

i've never had anything that looks like this before. here's the pics...

well, after doing a little more research, i think i've come to the conclusion that the spots are metabolytes. the reason that they are off colored is the fact that one day when i came home from work, i noticed that the temp. in my incubator was at like 95! i might have screwed them up. i guess i'll just ride it out and find out the hard way.

If it smells like soy sauce, they're contaminated with bacteria. High incubation temps favor bacterial growth, lower temps favor mushroom mycelium. Throw away your heated incubator and leave your jars on a shelf in your closet or elsewhere at normal room temperature. The extra few days they'll take to colonize is a worthy trade for lower contamination rates.
