Yesterdays visitors had to be....ummmmmmmm....harvested.
But not before this was taken to explain why:
They was dropping spores and everything so I had to pluck 'em.
Found out that the hefty 4" fan I have for the exhaust on my server makes a nice, slightly warm continual dry air flow that is perfect for mummification so that's where they rest now.
MLBjammer : I'm just lucky this time. My latest run of LC bottles (used Karo-esque w/ rye kernels instead of ME this time for clearer LC) looks to be a 5-6 out of 7 failure (3 LC prop and 4 new varieties MS syringe, 2 untouched w/ still no activity after 5 days) and I've lost 2 rye quarts so far.
It's just (re)beginners luck.
Maybe it's all the nudity during inoculation.
