I stopped adding to this jar once I saw the green mold. It started small and spread rapidly to this point only after about 5 days. This jar is on day 29. I'm saving it to use in a video where I'll scoop out the insides and see what we find.
Here's another photo:
Now for my other jars:
The jar on the right is day 29, Middle jar is on day 18 or 19, the jar on the left is day 14 and going very slow. That one had the new strain that I didn't have a very good stem butt to start with. Also it may be contaminated but I'm not sure yet. I'm very careful when I add more grounds and use plenty of alcohol. The green mold spores are in the air all around us so they are very easily contaminated. I even soak the coffee filter before I open the jar.
Here's another shot:
I grind my own coffee beans and have been making the grounds not so fine so that more air space is in the jar. I just filled that jar on the left to the top today. I figure it will be ready in a week.
Sumi over on Facebook posted his progress. His look fantastic and growing FAST! See Below:
I didn't have my good camera today so sorry if my photos are not the best. I'll post one more photo update and then the next video in about 10 days.
