possible black contam?
    #952395 - 10/11/02 09:16 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??

i should also note that all the jars are in the same rubbermaid incubator.

I know it sucks to get a contam and you want to save it, but the question isn't whether you can save it. You'll get a better return on your efforts by starting the jars over than trying cake surgery. Most of the time you can't save them and you just spread mold spores all over the place.

If its a noticeable black smudge, toss it.

Better safe than sorry- I learned that the hard way.

I tried to save some cakes that had acquired green mold, but it was useless. The only thing I did was shoot green mold spores all over my room, and now I can't take spore prints, or do anything Myco related in my room... And it sucks because its pretty much gonna be like that forever, no matter how much shit I spray :mad2:
