that's not cobweb.
any organic substance will sizzle with peroxide.
that's just fluffy mycellia which you beat down with the mist.

with cobweb, you'll want to look for something with a greyish hue and no set pattern of growth.....you'll know...........just trust your instinct......
white mycelium will often times colonize verm casings on cakes or refuzz up after dunking or birth........you will also see fuzz on the bottoms or maybe even the tops of your shrooms.........this is mycelium as well............most white fuzz is a sign of good metabolic activity.........

it seems like i continuously contaminate my liquid culture because there's nothing growing in it. i stir it up to see if anything is growing and i get a faint white twister from what looks like sediment in the centre of the jar. could this be cobweb?
this is absolutely frustrating that i've made so many cultures yet none of them grow anything. no smell either...

you may be looking at a success story, not a contam. post pics

i know what mycelium looks like as i've had success with liquid culture before. these aren't balls.
when i stir the water up, i guess it picks up the sediment from the bottom of the jar and it shows in a white twister shape. i suspect it could be a contaminant because mycelium does not grow even after a long time (i haven't counted the days though so maybe i'm impatient).
ah well, maybe i fucked up in putting the syringes together and got some contam in it. too bad for me.
