will innoculating a warm jar ruin/kill the spores?
    #11168068 - 10/02/09 05:01 AM (8 years, 6 months ago)

Its been 9 days and still no growth or contamination. The jars have been at room temp the whole time with some indirect light exposure. I used the pf tek method.  The only thing I can think of is that the temp of the jars was too high when i inoculated them.  They were warm to the touch (not hot) I waited about 45 min to an hour after steaming.  Any thoughts on if this could be the problem? any help would be great.

Hmmm could have been to warm since the inside of the jar was probably a few degrees warmer than the outside of it.i usually wait over night to let them cool off.

i dont think your jars could have been hot enough to kill the spores, you probably wouldnt be able to hold them if they were that hot. Spore death starts at 50c

i would lean on the side of dead spores. i did the same thing on my first run. got impatient and waited about the same time you did to inoculate. 1 out 12 colonized and it never colonized completely before fruiting itself in the jar. it  gave off one fruit before contam got it. i eventually read that the 24 hour wait period is HIGHLY recommended so that the entire cake will cool down. because the outside is touchable, the middle is still hotter than the outside. def wait the day, you're cake will repay your patience.
