Light brown color in jars??
    #578017 - 03/13/02 04:40 PM (21 years, 11 months ago)

It's been about 4 weeks since I've started colonization and 9 of my 12 jars are fully colonizated. But on a few there is a very small amount of a real light brown color almost a dirty white. Should I move to the next step with these jars?? Just want to make sure I don't fuck anything up. Thanks you your help.

hard to tell without seeing it, but condensation in the jars can come into contact with the mycelium and turn it a "cigarette stain yellow" color. It sounds like this might be what you are seeing. This can be reinforced if visible moisture is on the insides of your jars.

Just go forward with caution. Any change to greens or greys is reason to trash the jar.

If you have any doubt and can't trust your judgement, trash it. It's not worth the risk of expelling your stomach out through your nostrils....

Sorry, just got this.

Yeah go for it, but as always keep your eye out for anything that isn't white and fluffy.

Don't want to make any assumptions so I'll add this:

If you're too rough with the mycelium it can literally bruise. It's a bluish purplely color (just like the blue on a shroom). Contams are usually easy to spot. They don't look like the myc. at all. Like I said keep on the lookout for greens, greys, reds, and anything that seems to behave differently than the white and fluffies.

Keep an eye on that spot though, just in case. If after birthing it begins to grow, or develop differently, trash it. Remember if you're asking questions here your not a professional mycologist (no offense, eithter am I), and if you eat some nastiness you're going to need to see a professional doctor.

good luck and bluest wishes.

Light brown, piss yellow stain, even ink blue sometimes are just water stains. If it passes the smell test, i.e., they dont stink, go for it.
