Don't be so hasty. How big are they? Sometimes spores can clump up and form small black spots.

I leave my lids snug until around 90% colonized or until they stall then loosen the lid. My jars are only 2/3 full usually and never seem to stall.

I leave my lids on tight until done. as long as the mix isn?t to packed in the jar and you keep your temps right you won?t have a problem.

I also leave my lids on until 100% colonization. Don't worry about air exchange at this point. You should wait a little while longer, just to make sure the jars are contaminated.
