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.
