I started fish hydrolysate a month ago with fish, water, sugar and lactobacillus from organic Jersey cow yogurt (from a local farmer). The floating bits of fish have gone mouldy. It all smells of yeast/cider/beer/sourdough.
Is this okay or not? If not, can I do anything to salvage the liquid?
When making knfFuel (FAA) from the original recipe with just fish and brown sugar there is a 3-4 day window when you can “salvage” it if its gone wrong. typically the problem is not enough sugar. within 3-4 days of making it if it smells like bad fish adding more sugar can save it. if it goes longer without enough sugar or gets contaminated with water its not salvageable. the amazing thing is that this simple simple recipe of just fish and sugar is chock full of lactobacillus, which is one of the reasons its stores so well for so long. have faith. the microbes will do the rest.
