ok.. so the beaver has some colonized jars.. but has a problem, he realizes now.. when creating the 250ml jars, 1/4 cup of water was added to each... standard PF ratio. However, upon innoculation with honey water, they recieved much more water since a single innoculation point recieved up to 2cc's and there are 4 points in each jar.. thus these jars could've recieved an extra 8 cc's / ml of water... this was not compensated for initially.
Ok, the crux.. some jars have been closely examined and have slightly strange looking areas on them where tiny bits of the substrate are still showing through the mycelium (the jar is completely white except these couple of spots).. ok.. so the beave tore into the cake and found this location smelled very shroomy, BUT.. some of the brf was saturated with water and uncolonized, but all around it other areas were colonized. no odd colors, no odd smells... any ideals folks?
mycelium does not like to colonize substrate that is too wet. If it is only the soggy areas taht are not colonized and the rest of the entire jar is colonized, I would suggest that you just break off the uncolonized parts of the substrate and case the colonized parts.
