Hexegonal shaped mold in apple juice

  1. Dec 17, 2011 #1
    So my friend found a formation of mold in his week old apple juice. It's relatively solid as the formation stays intact when the bottle is shaken. There are oval shaped indentations on each corner. Does anyone know specifically what kind of mold this is? Thanks!

    It looks like it was shaped then set loose in the solution. I have had bottles of that brand of juice far older with only a tiny spot of mold. (my daughter likes juice, drinks in the car, half empty bottle roles under the seats, found later). :surprised No telling what was introduced into that bottle.

    Sorry to say so, but for a half way scientific examination, the bottle should be cut open, and a vertical, sharp, photo be taken. seen like this, it could be anything like
    a painted cracker.
