Lucks not on my side. All jars showing mold. First time experiencing this. Was extra cautious since its my first run in a couple years. Sigh.

makinbones69try spawning to grain and casing I would suggest helps with contamination vs cakes IMO. Can also grate up jars and use them as spawn that's how I stumbled on casing teks. GL friend!

ruachI have never had to be super sterile in my procedure and have never had mold. That said there are a couple of steps I'm careful about like, I sterilize my jars and Medium together in a pressure cooker as described on several sites. Wipe down my work area with bleach solution and keep it uncluttered. Use nothing but sterile instruments and any time I open a container I have inoculated, I do it infront of a hot oven with the door open. Hope u have better luck next time.
