HELP!
    #934906 - 10/05/02 06:24 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Ok...
i never encoutered info on that before so someone might be able to help me....
3 days after inncoulation the jars started showing sign of growth, but on the third day, after very careful examination i detected what seemed like the beggining of a penecilin mold contamination in one of the jars... i separated it from the rest immmidiatley, and then an idea popped in my head... since the contamination was very small (2 spots about 2 mm in diameter) i decided to burn it through the jar.... i used a lighter to heat up the jars from the outside in the spots where the mold was growing (on the inside) i did it 3 times since then and the mould changed colour, and it seems it stopped expanding. what are the chances it worked?
there.

It's been my experience that there is nothing that can kill that shit once you see it. Have tried every known method and some not so known, (dancing naked under a full moon chanting anti-green spells) and it will always win. Now first sign of it in jars, casings, etc are in the garbage. good luck
