    I recently tried a new supported vendor frspores. I did one pf tek jar with the Escondido variety. It's looking very healthy.
    But two others were knocked with albino a+. I've never worked with this before. I'm kinda hoping the myc from this strain is odd compared to other cubensis mushrooms.
    Here is what these two jars are looking like after a week.

    I'm not like that yellow myc piss. But, don't give up on them yet.
    Do the jars feel unusually warm?

    The supposed mycelium is very light and whispy spread quickly. I haven't noticed the jars being warmer. I'm worried it's all contaminated. It has a strong almost alcohol scent to it. I guess I'll wait to see what comes of them.

    if your BRF stink its provably bacterial fermentation

    Well that alcohol smell is wearing away but it just doesn't seem like what is growing is mushroom mycelia.
