Orange liquid in PF tek

Question

Aya

Hi all,

I have two jars that have this orange liquid. I only saw it today. Yesterday all was good

1) fully colonized on 23-12-2018. On the 25th it was still fine. 
2) fully colonized on 24-12-2-18.  On the 25th it was still fine. 

I found two different comments on other forums when I was googling about contamination:

A: Throw out the jar. Do not open is. Do not sterilize it. Some others say you can sterilize it

B: Birth them now and wash away the orange liquid and it's good to go.

Can anyone say if I can birth them. Also what are the risks if any at all? 

Love to hear from you. Thank you

Kind regards,
Aya

Looks like metabolites to me. I'd say a quick rinse before your dunk should be fine. Just keep an eye on them when in fruiting for other possible signs of contamination. Wait for a second opinion first though.

Regarding the risks: me personally, if I see anything off/funky I just toss it. I'd rather do that then take a chance. Truth be told, without being able to identify the specific contaminant (which you can't do without proper equipment), you really can't even safely identify the risks. So bottom line is eating anything from a contaminated sub is not safe.

      Pretty crappy quality pic, but, everything was white.  Started GT spores on agar here 6 days ago.  Took pic in still air box, may be contaminated now but who knows, I'll find out soon enough.   Cut into 6 pieces.  1 went into a jar of LC, 5 went into WBS jars. Going to be doing another round of WBS and 1 LC in the next week or two, whenever my PES hawaiin spores get here from different vendor.

      I'm back. Nd yeah absent thoughts i got a super nice pinset going now no casing layer! on 3rd flush, also made a super clean LC. Strain is PF CLASSIC. I did make a print from the GT i doubt the sterility of it though so im not wasting any time with that yet.. Things are moving along

      Parts per million and electrical current of the water.  Measured before you feed and after(after is measured through runoff).  You can buy a meter to test water with nutrient solution.  Although there is a K.I.S.S. method that wirks fine amd you dont need meters and a lot of water testing.  Just get Maxibloom and weigh out 7 grams per gallon of water, or use flora Nova bloom as directed.  With a ppm/EC meter you can fine tune exactly how much nutes your plants are getting for perfect dosage of the nutrients if you will.
