wire mesh contam?
    #932746 - 10/04/02 08:04 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

This is the first time I've used wire screen instead of jar lids to hold my cakes up over the perlite. On this one cake I have has a lot of purpley-black stuff on and near where the wire mesh touches it, either right in the grooves or just around them. It looks very similar in color to the usual bruising that occurs when you touch a cake, but they've been in there for a week and a half. it's too bad my digital camera broke, or i'd show you guys. is this usual?

spores?

Only thing i can think of is that the mycellium grew onto the wiremesh from moisture and then a mold grew on it? That scenerio seams unlikely, i have had mycellium grow down a cake and into the perlite tho.

because i don't have any lids. anyway, i turned the cake on its side to spray the questionable area with an h2o2 solution, and now the *new* bottom is displaying the same phenomena. i take from this that either the wire mesh is extremely contaminated (not likely with all the alocohol i cleaned it with before hand) or else it's just the screen cutting into the cake. it's probably nothing to worry about, so i tell myself
