Contamination?
« on: September 15, 2004, 07:19:46 PM »

I didnt think my jars looked right (this is about day 4) and I figured you guys would know better than I. Are these contaminated?



I'm not sure what would've went wrong. I even used latex gloves to keep everything as clean as I could. Guess I will try again.

Use a 2:1:1 Verm:water:BRF ratio.

It looks like some water leaked into the jar during the sterilization process and washed the BRF off of the verm and down into the bottom an sides of the jars. Use less water in the PC to avoid that.
