They do smell bad :angry:
I'm going to start all over, but I can't think of anything I can do better
So I have a few questions:
Is it ok to store spores in fridge before inoculation?
is spores101 a reliable source for spores?
Honestly those are the only 2 things i can think of that went wrong :huh:
I was sterile as hell

Thanks again for all your help!!! it is much appreciated!!!

i don't know about spores101. http://www.ralphstersspores.com/ this is the shit, ralphsters is very reliable. as for why it just happens, you can be as sterile as hell
and from time to time contams will still find there way in.. i just store my spores in my closet, in a Ziploc bag put into a small box. some times 2 to 3 months. you just have to start over. it happens to all of as..

I've had good luck with Earthstongue. They give you 20cc syringes so you can inoc more jars. I think ET changed hands a couple of years ago. It had a bad rap for awhile, my experience has been good. Bummer to get contammed like that. Good luck with the next batch.

did you shake your syringes before inoculating, alot of people forget to sometimes. And for the fridge, I think I read somewhere that you have to wait that they get to room temperature before inoculating, but I'm not sure at 100%.

If you did PFtek it doesn't look like you have a dry verm layer in your jars. This acts as a blocker to help prevent contaminates. Does it look like there is no dry verm layer on the top to anyone else?
