That color looks weird to me . Haven’t messed with cakes in awhile though . The last ones i messed with were nice and white . Yours is looking yellow which I would normally say is just metabolites but I haven’t had metabolites on cakes .

I don’t do cakes, so anything I say could be wrong. 

It could be metabolites or it could be contaminated, I wouldn’t risk it. However, if you open it and it smells like mushrooms and the yellow is just liquid without anything physical on the cake itself it could be ok. 

Do you have holes ontop of your jars covered with ms tape? The foil could be blocking the GE.

Yeah ita strange, I've seen pictures of contaminated cakes but non of them look like this. It's been growing like that from the very beginning and it actually grew pretty quick. So idk what to do, fruit it or toss it?

 

I have foil blocking the holes. I inoced 16 jars with different strains, all seem yo be growing fine and 5 of them with this one grew the fastest, these are about 95% ready

Looks like water in the jar. I would say metabolites from excessive moisture.

Oh ok that would make sense, I am using an aquarium heater method and my hydrometer has been reading around 90% humidity. I guess i should try to air it out every now and then

No. You shouldn't open those jars until ready to birth...unless your goal is to grow mold.

Oh no i meant open the chamber not the jars. I'm at work but when i get back I'll open that one jar i posted, if it smells fine ill begin to fruit because i noticed a very small black dot on one of the aborts, so I'm gonna pick them out and begin to fruit

Was it 100% colonized ? Even after it is 100% wait a week so you can be sure the center is colonized too .
