    EFBFCB05-D5A3-4593-B1C7-FA017FA617A1.jpeg Two bags of recent Blue Oyster grain spawn got the yeast infection(at least that’s what I believe it is). I’ve had it happen before and always just tossed them. Any chance of spawning to wheat straw successfully if I just keep it rolling? The mycelium is definitely still vigorous past the yeast. Will try to post pictures. Let me know what y’all think about it.

    @Nihidao just judging from the clumpy/grainy looking white spots within the mycelium. Will see if I can get a better picture of it

    I would toss it if you've got more healthy spawn on the way. Otherwise If you think its got contams brewing or "ate" contam is never a good thing but results can still be gotten(not with cubes). since its blue oyster m aybe spawn it outside and fruit it outside. you could also try to fruit the bag of grain.

    Copy that @redcat thanks for the info. I think I’ll try to fruit the bag of grain outside. If anything outrageous happens in the meantime I’ll update. Thanks again yall

    Definitely looks like yeast. Doesn't look like it's slowing down the oyster mycelium much though. I'm with redcat on doing everything outside if possible, but it couldn't hurt to let it ride. What strain are you working with?

    It’s a blue oyster I got from mycelium emporium about a year ago, transferred to LC I made. Tested the LC beforehand and all looked fine on agar. Assuming mishandling on my part upon inoculating the grain.

    I only asked because some oyster strains that I have worked with always look like they have yeast along for the ride. Not sure if is is just a characteristic of the mycelium or actual contam. Shit, the last HK grow I did looked like it had yeast and I got great fruits from it.

    I just discovered the mycelium emporium recently. They have quite a range of species. Got a few of them on plate/grain now. I've been happy with everything so far

    Yeah I have had great results from that blue strain in the past, I’ve just never had a yeast encounter as prolific as this one. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. Will keep the thread updated if anything extraordinary happens. Thanks again for the input guys

    Quick update on the grain spawn that had possible yeast contamination. I went ahead and spawned it to a bale of wheat straw, lime pasteurized. It is definitely producing healthy oysters. I have them outside in my homemade oyster tunnel, just misting several times a day with the hose. Just wanted to follow up and show what that grain spawn is producing.

    Sure does. Kicking myself for throwing out all the ones before that looked similar!
