ARe you boiling the jars right after you mix the substrate matter and load into jars? IF you leave them too long in the jars that is really a great place for contams and bacteria to flourish.

so you removed the foil and added the tape when they were cool? next time put the tape on before boiling. use aluminum tape. it works perfect.

I've also tried substituting BRF with organic soy flour. The jars with this substrate
in did not have any kind of growth. Neither contam nor mycelium. So I would give soy flour thumbs down for substratepurposes.

If God Hates you.....Hate him back.....works for me.

Great movie Lethal Weapon 1 i think? :smile:

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

Yes that was a line from Lethal Weapon.
