Are you sure your dog didn't peepee on them (americanbulldog)??

Just kidding.

You need to spray everything down with a strong bleach solution now.
That purple shit is funky! Looks like a biro leaked on it.

Damn pain in the arse losing jars like that. My freind lost 12, that was the fault of a contaminated print. She thought that was a waste of time and money, but 40 jars, that is a big shitter.


Good luck

Thats horrible. Did you have a ramsey seal in the jar? Becareful cleaning them out, you never know what or how harmful those contams can be towards you.

To clean your filter discs, get a bucket, fill it with 2-3 gallons of water and put a 1/4 cup of bleach into the bucket. Mix the bleach and water together. Throw in your filter discs and let them sit overnight.

The next, pull them out and let dry.

I would stick with the vermiculite layer(no disc) if doing PF style cakes.
Also a sterilisation time of 1 hour won?t do any harm.
Filter discs are great if you work with shakeable substrates like birdseed or rye.

Using a dry verm layer on top of yer jars helps a lot.

I use Tyvek filters and have almost no contams whatsoever (5%?). The problem looks very simple to me: You have put too much substrate in the jars! The jars should only be 2/3 to 3/4 full and NOT in contact with the filter. Being in contact could cause the filter to "wick up" some nutrients making them available to outside contams. The filters are a barrier to AIRBORNE contaminants falling on dry filter material.

As you did not mention anything about how you transferred the spores, there could be problems in that area also. I do all transfers in a new trash bag sprayed down with Lysol. This works much better than the "Oven-Tek"

Forget the ramsey seal and vermiculite. Don't make things more complicated than they need to be.

Hope this helps.

Since he hasn't logged in to shroomery in over 4 years, I doubt he'll see your reply.  Let's let this old thread rest in peace.
