SLOWWW THINGS DOWNNNNN!
    #1093331 - 11/28/02 08:12 AM (18 years, 3 months ago)

Question: I am going on winter break soon for approximently 3.5 weeks. I am going to make up pint jars with birdseed and innoculate with a spore syringe. I will innoculate the day I leave and hope to have them 100 % done when I get back. The thing is that I don't want them to be way over colonized when I return cause that would suck ass. How can I prevent them from going crazy, I heard that grains go quickly. I was thinking that I would use like 1cc of solution per jar instead of a lot. Also the temps would be at like 75 degrees or so to slow things down. Should I maybe also use bigger jars like quarts??????

pint jars with just a little spore solution and low temps..
will take like a month to colonize i'd say.

Yeah, a month for PF cakes, but birdseed?

I haven't grown with grains yet but from everything i've read i think mycellium would rip through half pints of birdseed in no time.

Don't quart jars of grain colonize in like two weeks? (with a little shaking of course)
Somebody correct me if i'm way off here.

just stick them in the fridge or somewhere much cooler than colinization temps...

Don't get hung up on how fast grain is supposed to be becuase it has more to do with the strain, temps, and o2 supply....

Yeah just put the lids on tight and the reduced air exchange should prolong the growth. I'd keep em at room temp.
