Why does my juice turn into some new life form ?!

Post by exxos » Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:15 pm

Just normal juice/squash.. (water with flavouring) Leave it for 2 days and get this white stuff appearing. Mould is normally black/green , but this appears really quick over the weekend.. what the heck is it ?!

Mould doesn't have to be colourful, however this is probably something like gelatin coming out of solution if it's only a couple of days and it's in a fridge. Out of a fridge, it could be bacterial or fungal as weak sugar solution with some protein is basically yummy. More likely bacterial in that time frame.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

I've not seen it do it in the fridge, or in the concentrate bottle.. very odd... must be something to do with the sugar in it.
