My damn cakes are dead....need a mentor!
    #1354716 - 03/06/03 11:34 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

After looking at the contaminated pics in the gallery I soon realized that my cakes were also contaminated. I trashed them and have started over. I used latex gloves and was extremely sterile this time and i made an incubator. I bought two rubbermaid containers at Wal-Mart and a fish tank heater. I put the heater in one of the containers and filled it halfway full of water and then put the other container inside of it and put my innoculater PF jars inside and used my college books to wiegh it down so the water comes up around the sides. The temp is currently 66.4 degrees and the humidity is 54%. I think that may be too chilly should i put a heating pad inside the container with the PF jars to raise the temp??? Any suggestions???

did you sterilize the jars? hehe...

the only time i ever had massive contamination problems (bacteria) was when i used an incubator like the one you just described....

What is your heater set at? If it's not at like 100, turn it up, maybe.

This is off topic, but what type of incubator do you use? I've thought about using the above method, but if it is ideal to contamination, I'd like to find another way.
:confused:

It is not prone to contamination...add h2o2, and even some IPA, to the water and you'll be fine.

It's rubbing alcohol. Sorry if that seemed snooty...used to use it at work and forgot where I was kind of.
