    Hey guys, I'm still working on my first grow and having some issues at fruiting time - is this contamination or metabolic waste from the mycelium? Yellowish funk appeared within the last 2 days after the cakes were already colonized.

    The jars were sterilized and shipped on 10/1 and inoculated on 10/4 with the first growth noted around 10/10ish. Out of 60 jars total, these 7 Penis Envy are the only ones showing this particular discoloration / potential contaminant. Everything looked great at the last check on Sunday - and each individual jar was removed and thoroughly inspected. Today I went back to pull everything to start fruiting and noticed it. I have not opened the jars to check for any odors yet, as I wanted to check with you guys first - if it's contaminated, it's getting tossed but if it's still good obviously I'm not getting rid of good PE's.

    Looks like sour rot or wet spot to me
