How much smell would a mycobag produce if it was contamed... Would my whole living room smell if the mycobag was somewhere in my living room?

Thanks... I just want to know how much odour a contam would make!

A substrate contaminated with bacteria will smell like your kitchen garbage when you forget to take out the trash for a few days. In a filter patch bag, you'll have to put your nose right up against the filter to smell it. Be sure to only sniff through the filter. If the bag has molds and you smell it directly by opening the bag, you can breathe in possibly dangerous amounts of spores. If you have something that makes the whole room stink, toss it out without taking a whiff.

RR is right on.
If it smells bad, it is.
If it stinks, it is real bad.
Simple as that.

It should only smell like fresh mushrooms in the grocery store, if you don't know that smell. Any apple-smelly feet-rotten garbage odor means it's infected with bacteria.

I've had jars take on a noticable (but not terrible) sour smell and darkening in colour in small areas - which i immediately assumed was wet-spot, so i put them outside to observe over the next week.

After a week the smell went away and the dark spots began to colonise. Hypothetically speaking, if these cakes fully colonised and bared fruit would it be safe to consume them?

(i really have to invest in a PC, been scanning the thrift stores but no luck)

cheers

If a cake goes through the entire fruiting cycle without stinking and changing colors it's fine.

Wait... did the dark spots start to colonize the rest of the cake, or did the mycellium colonize the dark areas??

Check out ebay, they have some good PC's for pretty cheap!  :smile:

apples smell sweet and nice so I asuume you are talking about rotten apples or rotten anything in general.
