Until it turns green or black or some other off color, I would not assume its a contam.
If it is, you can try to eradicate it. You could try Hydrogen peroxide, or alcohol. I read of someone spraying Wild Turkey or some other hard liquor on it and getting good results.
Best of luck.

In the future you can pre-case with a compost or manure to create a protective boundary against contams. Straw is known to be easily contamed. I will be creating a log soon documenting this method.

Good luck!

>>contaminants probably enter during the spawning of the straw and thus would already be contained in the casing before this protective boundary is put in place.<<

I don't know about that - if it entered during spawning, one would think that it would be more widespread. From what I can see, your acrylic covering doesn't completely reach the edges of the spawn (since there's mycelium poking up around the edges). It seems logical that your contam entered at a point that was not covered.

I think that's why most straw teks I've read mention using a piece of plastic that is tucked around the edges.

Straw is known to be easily contamed
Most people say,including Stamets,say the exact opposite...

I will read up on what Stamet's comments are. Do you recall what book and page? I am planning on spawning the manure casing layer as well.

Read Mycofile's grow log for more info regarding pre-casing with a spawned layer over the straw.
I`ve been doing it and it deffinately helps when harvest time comes as well.
