Did you buy or make your syringe, either way that could have been the source. Or maybe God just hates you, hehe.

Boiling your jars is never 100% reliable. You really need a pressure cooker to guarantee you've killed all the bugs.

Yeah, let's kill god. hehehe. But anyways, don't fret it. Contams happen. Did all of your jars get contaminated? If so, it still may be your sterilization process. If it was that easy to pin down where contams came from, no one would have these problems. (yeah I know that this is addressed to Roadkill, but the part about the contams isn't)

Did you wipe the inside lip of the jar after putting the wet BRF/Verm mix into the jar?
You want to wipe the inside lip before adding the Dry Verm layer.
Some people get contams cause they don't wipe this 1/2" section.
Contams will find there way past this.... if you don't wipe it clean......IMHO.

I agree that a PC is better, but it is not 100% either. If you can't get a PC, boiling is your next best option, once you've done it a couple of times, you can get pretty good, I got up to about a 90% success rate with boiling.

gotcha....I'll bet that is why you got contams.

next time wipe.....and use brown rice flour.

2 cups Verm
1 cup water
1 cup BRF

better luck next time!
