Hey guys

 

I innoculated my first batch of jars.

Six jars - 5 different strains.

 

One is colonized beautifully white ready to fruit.

One was definately contaminated - I have thrown out.

 

The other 4 seem to be weakly colonized.

My friend said if I innoculated at the same time and one is good the others should be as good and that there is contam.

The other 4 are definately not as white as one.

 

Is there logic to his argument.

Is greyish colonization acceptable as weak colonization after 2 weeks or does this sound like me justifying contam?

 

Any advice would be great  - can try and post photos

 

Cheers! :worship:

Could be contam. Could be any number of other factors, if its grey im leaning towards contam.

 

Pictures are always helpful. Ive seen a few of these threads back flip on the conclusion after a photo is posted.

 

A picture paints a thousand spores.
