yeast
« on: September 09, 2008, 12:55:05 PM »

hi, I'm a new user. 

I have cakes I just birthed, but they smell yeasty, very yeasty, so I'm assuming they have some yeast contamination.  They do have plenty of white fluffy mycelia though.  I was wondering if I have to tank them, or if they'll fruit and be nontoxic.  Also, what could be causing this, I've had plenty of contaminants before, but never yeast.

Sounds like Bacterial contamination.
What can cause it is insufficient steralization.
I wouldn't eat them.
Bacteria causes rot and eating that can cause food poisoning. -_-

Hope that helps.

I think you're right.  Soon after I birthed them, the contaminant began to die and the mycelia are now growing over it and pinning.  I still don't think I'll eat them, but do you think I can take spore prints.  They're p.Tropicalis/and I really want some prints.

If it's recooping you can take prints but, be sterile and exact, to lessin' the chance of contam.
Then run a test run or two on the samples you took to confirm sterility.
