cakes wont finish
    #1355752 - 03/06/03 10:47 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

My cakes made it anywhere from 20-60%, 10 of them... However they have stopped now. Room temp gets a bit chilly at night, and they are not at optimal temp, but pretty close to 80 most the time. There was a couple times it would get real cold at night and mess with them, and also with the heater too high, cause it once, at 95 at the box, little cooler @ the jars. They have been about 75 now for over a week(i think im going on 3+ weeks) and they arnt growing.... No contams, however no airflow either, the caps are on super tight, without holes in the lid. The problem is i dont have any verm as a top layer because i innoculated with mycelium. Could it be a lack of air? thanks

Yes
You should have made holes in the lids.

Loosen the jar lid so that they are real loose.
You will get enough air exchange for the jars to finnish up.

I used to use jars with out holes in them too.
But I used a Verm layer on top.
I hope they don't contam on you...but you do need some air for them to finnish up.
So you might be damned if you do...but your damned if you don't!

good luck!

Lighty dampen a paper towel with alcohol and let it sit for a minute or so. Put this on top of the jars and slowly unscrew the bands a few turns, dont take them all the way off, just loosen them.
