smells like @&$#
    #4627453 - 09/06/05 10:53 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I inoculated some jars 4 days ago. I noticed one jar yesterday was getting some white sort of growth. Well today it seemed that the substrate was compacting and getting mushy. I took the foil of the jar and noticed a sickly sweet horrible smell. I sniffed a few more jars, some have the same smell and others smell like the substrate. Is this the "mushroom smell" I have heard about, or is it a contaminant? I took the one jar and threw it out, should I seperate the other smelly ones?

Not good shrooms have an earthy smell, isolate the jars that have smell from those that dont and see what happens with them.

Ya. When I was incubating my first jars, I always wondered how I would be able to tell a good shroomy smell versus a contam smell. Especially since I hate eating mushrooms of any kind. But one day, I finally experienced it. The smell was actually wonderful. You will know it when you smell it, trust me. You just wanna say "Mmmmmmmmmmm".

Def a contam if it smells sweet and garbagey. The only way I can relate that smell to you is if you drive by really grassy (and poopy) pastures after a good hard rain and get that one strong whiff which doesnt smell like anything else. Also if you slice open a mushy fresh as hell from the grocery store it can give you an idea, think that smell combined with the way cubies taste. Thats your smell, and damn a smell is hard to describe.
