Here's a closer shot of the regrowth as of today. Sorry, it's the best I can get with my phone. Looking like there is some white growth this time but the black is returning. Time to raise the white flag on this one.

Ok, it's your meat, I understand and hope it ends up delicious. I appreciate your input. First run, I'm likely overthinking it but learning. So far, a lot less checking in on this than when I made my first batch of wine. :) How much, if any, black/not-white mold growth will you work with before tos...

I thought about chucking it this morning but since it cleaned up I thought to give it one more try. Same meat and casing as two of the other pieces that are fine.

Well the black, or something similar returned. To recap; put into the chamber May 7th, black mold developed in about five days and was cleaned off on day six (May 13th) and reinoculated. About five days later it looks like this. https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/media/img_0822.60953/full I remove...

When you sanitized it did you spray it good and close the door and run it for a day or so? That is what I did with mine and it seemed to work well. Good luck with it and let us know how it goes. Yes, I cleaned it all out a couple of times when I started the cure and had it running for a week before...

Thanks. This helps. Although it was not the 600 mold I was looking for, it did appear to be a light white fuzz and black spores. Not slimy at all. After wiping it was all gone for the most part. The netting was not as white/tan as it was. I did give things a sanitize before entering the meat. I's a ...

Black mold

Greetings all, My first attempt curing. Whole muscle from a wild hog hind quarter. Cured in vac bag for a bit over two weeks, rinsed, respiced, stuffed into casings, netted, into my chamber at 55*F and 75% humidity, and dipped in Bactoferm 600 12 hours later. After a few days I saw light white fuzz ...

Received my slicer via eBay yesterday. Thank you very much for the recommendation! Arrived in prefect condition and seams to operate just fine. One of the three blade screws is stuck. I worked at it for about half and hour, I'll give it another shot when i have some time to focus on it...

I worked in the Bronx ten years ago but don't recall. I'll check the post and see what I can find out. Good reason for a road trip. :grin:
