possible contams?
    #952003 - 10/11/02 06:59 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

i took the advise of a couple of people here yesterday to take the tape off my BRF jars and flip them for gas exchange purposes, and no sooner do i take it off, i find a black splotch that looks wet, or greasy on the verm layer on the side of the jar.it doesnt look like its reached the myc, but its pretty much all the way thru the verm layer.
i dont smell anything funny, thru the holes but i also dont wanna keep smelling it in case it is contam.

the jars are 80% colonized from the top of the jar down.

can the cover be taken off this jar, and the black stuff be scooped out?

im sure it can just be left, and if it is contam, let the 2 duke it out in the jar, while marveling at the nature of things, but the jar doesnt wanna be thrown out.

what can i do??
