Innoculating with a sponge...
    #11304611 - 10/23/09 09:01 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

So, I am going to use a sponge when knocking up some jars in a day or so... it seems pretty good, no one seems to have had any trouble except me, lol, I did this with some LC the other day, how in the hell did you get the needle through the sponge? Do you all have needles with a point, because ever syringe ive gotten has had a blunt tip... do you use a certain type of sponge or something?

Why go through some ghetto method? The sponge costs more then a lighter to flame the needle. I'm sure it also cost more then some micropore tape to re-seal the hole after knocking it up...

When you take these so called "short cuts" you get fucked in the ass.
Just do things the right way and you will succeed.

Actually if you read up on it you may know it's not a shortcut, it's just an easy and sterile way to inoculate outside a glove box, you still flame the needle... the sponge just goes on and limits the open air the needle is exposed to...

Sponge isn't needed- but even a dull needle will go through a sponge. It'll go through your finger if you are careless.

That may be so, but It makes me feel comfortable.... I must have some tough ass sponges, i had to push hard as hell, almost bent the needle. Either way I like this way inoculating outside a glove box, we'll see how it goes when i get my stuff noc'd up tomorrow, got grains simmering right now.

Glove boxes are good, but when you have big arms it's hard to maneuver.

I work on my stovetop. :shrug: But if the sponge thing makes you feel good, then do it.

As far as needle work, I think you'll get more used to it. Putting a needle through a sponge is easier than you are making it out to be.
