Going away for 12 days, what to do with jars
    #1159500 - 12/21/02 06:10 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

As the topic, I'll be leaving the country on Monday for 12 days. The jars are 95% right now. What do I do with it?

Do I put the whole jar inside ziplog and throw them inside the freezer? Would freezing the cake kill the myceliums?

Thanks

Do not throw in freezer. Put the jars in the refridgerator they will be fine there.

12 days isn't too long, what temp is your incubation chamber at, or what do you keep your jars at? If they're only 95% done, itll probably be a couple of days to fully colonize, then you should wait like three days to grow through the center, the extra time out might be good for it. Also what do you wanna do with the substrate, case or cake? You could come back to pins! or the fridge works too!! Whatever you think would be better.

I incubate the jars at 82-84 F, and I plan to birth them as cakes. You think they'll be fine if I just leave them the incubator?

Thanks

I'd leave them in the incubator. You'll come home to a very healthy mycelium network.

i think you'll regret the fridge since you will have to wait longer. i've had cakes go two weeks past 100% colonization without problems.
