how long should an average 3/4 pints take to innoculated with b+ take to colonize? its been over two months and there is still a little left. my temperature for all my jars is in the high 70's. also, how long should an average creeper 1/2 pint take. its been 10 days, and all i see are little white specks everywhere, from top to bottom.

do grain jars take less time to colonize? what are the advantages of using grain? and should you just stick the grain in the jar w/out grinding it up? thanks a lot    :grin: :grin:

2 months is way to long for a jar to colonize, if i were you i'd birth it and cut out the, presumed, contaminated part. (maybe case it)
the creeper is a quick one....but it really depends upon the type of white spots, and if they corrispond at all to where you inoculated.

advantage of grain is that it's all food, and if you grind it up you'll need to use vermiculite for spacing purposes....normally if it's just grain you don't grind it up, you just cook it and then sterilize it, or soak it overnight and sterilize it.....one or the other :wink:

your colonising jars should be 80-85F. i think many people exagerate the speed with which their jars colonise, although 2 months is a long time, do they look dry?

grain jars may take less time to colonise. if you inject a good bit of honey water into 4 points of a jar it should be colonised quickly. grains can be shook to spread the colonised grain about so you wont get uncolonised patches like you get in jars. dont grind the grain. i much prefer grain, bigger fruits, higher yeilds. once you try grains and casing you'll never go back to cakes
