OH MY GOD
    #1064487 - 11/19/02 12:56 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Well, i got off my ass and bought a thermometer/hydgrometer ($40 @ radioshak)
Then i put it in the middle of my jar box and damn! over 103 degrees!!!! Im using and electric pillow thing that gets pretty hot but i had it buffered with a ton of towels... 7 out of 12 cakes are colonizing. 5 of those 7 are about 30% done and i innoc. Saturday 10 days ago.. no signs of contam to speak of (i think-newb)
anyhow i got the temp down to 87 and ill keep it there.. ill just have to wait and see if those jars with no growth still have viable, uncooked (heh) spores in em

103 degrees hurt your mycellum. I dont even bother using heaters. is it so cold? keep the jars indoors. you have a heater in your house, right? set the heater on and to 70 degrees. this will heat the entire house, making you comfortable and the mycellum fine but a bit slow.

I agree with the last post. I've never used any heat source. The house is always atleast 70 and upstairs is much warmer. I don't even incubate my colonizing jars, which move along at a steady rate. I suppose so much concern with heat only applies to those looking for speed.
