OK... I made some jars about 3 weeks ago (un-incubated) and still I have nothing. I think I am ready to give up on those and make another few jars. My only question is this. I have a spore syringe, and I used 8 cc's out of it (have 2 left). So before putting spore solution into the last jars, I sterilized using a lighter. I don't know if that was a good idea or not, as after I did this, I noticed a small amount of black dots (that I doubt are spores) in the syringe. Does anybody know whether these spores are still good?

Its probably spores, but there's only one way to find out, inoculate them.

K... well when I got the syringe, the little black things weren't there, and I'm quite confident that this would be from sterilizing via lighter. Would a little bit of that fuck up the spores? And in my other jars, there are no signs of contamination, and no signs of growth. To be exact it's been three weeks and two days I believe. I sterilized the jars at high temperatures in a pot, so I think I might have gotten the jars watter-logged, though they show no signs of this, I think because I used home-made brown-rice flour. Anything else?

OK... well I emptied one of the jars, and apparently all of the substrate is quit tightly packed in there. I think this may be because the water content was altered during jar sterilization. Because it was probably boiling vigorously. lol. Does this sound right?
