HELP PF JAR DONT WANNA COLONIZE!
    #1334883 - 02/25/03 02:45 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Although most of my jars are colonized other parts dont wanna colonize.There is a spot about the size of a quarter on one jar and half of the other one that isnt white and dont wanna colonize. Any suggestions?? Also how can i speed up the bithing process??? Havent seen any myclemium yet.

the white is mycelium.

how long has it been since you inoculated your jars?

what is the temperature of where you keep your jars?

do you have tape covering the holes in the lid of your jars?

I say fuck it and scrape the part thats not colinized off and use the rest for casing. It works for me. Unless you wanna birth them as a cake then of course youd have to wait or it would be open to contams with a spot thats not covered by mycelium

I innoculated the jars 6 weeks ago. The temp is generally around 75 degrees. At first i had the holes in the lid covered but then i removed them to increase air exchange. So any suggestions? Also should I just cut the one thats halfway colonized in half and use it as a casing even though i havent seen any pinning yet?

Man if you innoculated your jars 6 weeks ago and you only have a little spec of mycellium going i'm betting you have a bacterial contqm or something.
I can post a picture of a friends jars colonizing if that would help you any...

You might have a bacterial contam.

You realize that the optimal temperature is 84 to 86 degrees f...for colonization.

Try flipping your jars and taping the jar with your hand so the cake comes unstuck from the jar.
Leave them upside down for a few days and see if they start back up.
Put them in a warmer place!

You might open one jar and take a wiff...if it smells fermented, you have a bacterial contam.

Lastly...never listen to poogrower!
