water incubator Q
    #1009732 - 10/31/02 11:43 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I have "build" another incubator. This time simply using a plastic bin and a aquarium heater. The bin has just enough water in it so that the jars almost float, but not quite. the heater is set to 32 C (max). There's bleech in the water. Anyone see any problems with this setup?

Just my opinion, but I do not think it is wise to have your jars immersed in water in your incubator. I use two bins, one with water and a heater, and the second bin sits in the first. The jars sit in the second bin, nice and warm and dry.

Check out this recent thread for some idea of what I'm talking about:

I agree with Fred, don't let your jars touch the water at all or something may contam your jars even though you have bleach in the water. Dude has a similar situation with an incubator but has a solution for it. If you dont want to do 2 containers then use the 1 get some of that wire mesh or a wire shelf from home depot and set that on top of some extra jars small bricks inside your container. You can further improve by laying a couple garbage bags down on the wire shelf and taping them together and to the inside of the container to help with the condensation build up. The plastic bags sort of trap the condensation but provide ample heat for the jars.  :smile:
