reply to: What makes you so sure the syringes were contaminated? I bet it was your error.

i've had the same problem but not with ralphster.
but i mean if you had like 40 jars, innoculated with 3 different strains on the same day. and the one specific strain of jars fuct up. i would bet that it was the syringe and not error. 'cause error would cause the other jars to fuck up too.

I got my very first syringe (EQ) from Ralphster on 6/10/02. I initially created 7 1/2 pint jars PC'd @ 12.5psi for 20min, and they all got black pin mold at around 70% growth. I then tried the honey tek using 1cc of spore solution, PC'd @ 15psi for 20min. It too got the same mold. I then created 3 more jars using the addition of the Ramsey seal, the ovek tek and liberal amounts of lysol spray in my kitchen, PC'd @ 20psi for 20min. Once again, the same mold showed up. In all cases I used the optimal frutiing substrate formula as dictated by the PF tek--1/4cup BRF, 1/2cup verm, 60cc water.

On 7/13/02 I created one jar from an EQ syringe purchased from SporeWorks. The jar has now reached 100%, and there is not one sign of mold in these.

I think you and I, and apparently others, were just unlucky to get some dirty syringes.

I figured with Ralph being such a reliable vedor this was a rare instance, and I talked to him today and he will be replacing my bad syringes

Ralphster is one of the greatest and most reliable vendors on this board and he is the epitome (sp?) of what this community is all about! thanks Ralph!!!

Ralphster's Spores check him out!!!

As with everything in life, shit happens. Caps are not sterile by their nature. So, prints from those caps can -- as -- with everything else in life can contain unwanted things.

LOL, not long ago, the Raccoon placed an order with a vendor that, ending up getting exposed to some very high heat in a mail box. That heat killed those spores, all except one strain, for reasons the Coon will never know. He did'nt ask for a refund from the vendor. Heat & nature did it, not the Vendor.

In another instance, with an order from another Vendor one syringe of a certain strain appeared to be contam'ed. Because it got the blue funk after being innoc'ed into some rye grain jars. Excepting, the same syringe was also used to innoc a couple straight white millet jars also. The Rye jars went bad from a contam, the white millet jars innocc'ed with the same syringe did not. So, that one the Raccoon blamed on the Rye, not the syringe.

To start squaking, when you don't know where the contam came from?

Is ......... Well, you know.

The reputable vendors are just that.

This is by no means a perfect science. Sometimes you win, sometimes not.

Shit happens. Sometimes when it is no ones fault.

I did EQ's for the first time last month and had a contam problem as well. I noticed that you used the birdseed tek?? Well I blame the prob mostly on how I prepared my birdseed, I wasnt sure if I had to soak or rinse the finseed first, so I just threw the seed in and added the water. The jars seemed ok after PC'ing them and I inoculated...Either I screwed up withpreparing the water content, soaking etc...or the EQ's are less resistant to higher incubation temps and higher than avg moisure...is a guess...Im prob totaly wrong......I would double check your incubator temps and moisture.....and make sure your incubator is very clean, i never washed my from previous use....so all of that is a factor if you say that you were very clean inoculating

I guess I should have been more clear:

I wasn't trying to say anything bad about Ralphster, I have nothing but good things to say, excellent service and I will for sure use him again! I was just letting the vendor be known to see if anyone else was experiencing this so I could be sure that it was the syringe, didn't want to ask for a replacement if I was the only one. Sorry if it seemed like I was talking shit, cuz I wasn't tryin too.

Trashcan? yeah right, those puppies got dumped outside, hopefully something will happen =) Other than a black mold growing in my yard.

My goal is that you get mushrooms from what I ship you...




Ralph... I HATE to sound like (asshole) Mycotek, but isn't that a rather dangerous/risky statement to make?

Um, if you absolutly think that its your vendors vault, then contact them. Its not fair to mention vendors in a negative light when posting threads unless you get negative service from a vendor.

I really didn't see anyone over-reacting. People get pissed when they see contams but I did not read the post as coming from someone that is pissed. I read a rather matter of fact post about someone who bought a contammed syringe from Ralph. Shit happens, who was over-reacting?

I just found out this weekend that the 2 PR syringes I got from Ralph BOTH had mold spores and it was BLACK. I'm not happy about this at all, I'm PM'ng him now.

Has he sent anyone else their replacements yet? I'm very dissapointed.

Ralph, I don't appreciate you insinuating I'm a liar. I PM'd you my name and address and told you my problem and your only response was "whoa....I dont have problems here. I dont have black mold or anything...never did.
I dont get contams here. "

Yeah Ralph, it looks like I'm the one stuck with the problem. So I assume your not going to replace my syringes? YOU SUCK!

No customer service at all except when you take the money. After that it's all the customers fault.

I'll go to Sporeworks next time, you are a crook!
