Forgot tin foil before sterilising
    #11337799 - 10/28/09 01:39 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

First off, I'd like to say hi to all you Shroomerites. So, hi! =)

I did a search and found mixed opinions and most posts included a pressure cooker, so I decided to do a new post. So here's the thing - I attempted to follow the BRF tek on mushroomvideos.com, along the way I forgot to put the foil on the jars before putting them into the pot (that's right, no PC). Also I didn't use Tyvec, I used micropore tape (the kind you get in pharmacies). There doesn't seem to be any excess water in the jars, ie. there's no free water. Should I start over or just continue on with the inoculation? What do?

if your substrate (brf/verm) doesnt look wet or have water pooled up, your probably fine, lucky but fine.

:super:

Thanks for the input. Well, when I rotate the jars the top layer of dry verm gives off a rattle against the lid, so I'm guessing it's dry. And if the top layer is dry, then the rest should be fine too, right?

yeah, but dont disturb the dry verm layer, its your contam barrier and you dont want to jiggle the bad stuff down into your substrate.:stoned:

Noticed some condensate on the walls of the jars on the dry verm level, is this ok, or should I reconsider the inoculation? More jars are not gonna' happen, since I don't have anymore of them right now..

condinsation is normal (jar is warmer inside than the air outside) just make sure your jars have cooled to room temp b4 inoculation.

Thanks for that. On a second look that was a dumb question, but, given the circumstances, I'm unsure of most everything.
