Hey, Jim needs some clarification:

1. How did you prepare the rye (e.g. pressure cooked at ... fractional sterilization ...)?
2. How did you transfer the colonized cakes (e.g. in a pork rendering plant, in a clean bathroom)?
3. What size are the jars?
4. Are the syringes purchased, or homemade?

Jim found that soaking grains for 12-24 hours worked best. You need to rinse off all that carbohydrate sluge -- the water that runs through the rinsed grains should be crystal clear ... If you are more specific, I'm sure Jim would be glad to help you ....

My homie says that you should probably wait a lil' bit. He had some PF-Tek cakes that didn't show a hint of mycelial growth untill after about 11 days.

1) i pressure cooked for a full hr at 15 psi
2)i used oven tek to pull a chunk (Prob inch diameter) of the cake
3)the are quart jars
4) i purchase syringes from lilshopofspores, which haven t given me best results over all ( i miss pf) but my concern is not with the jars i had to discard, more than there in mycelium existing in the jars , no signs of contams yet, but it doesnt seem to want to spread like im doing sumthin wrong, Maybe im just impatient

so i did another jar, and this time i put in more water than before, instead of adding water till it just covered the grain i made it about an inche deeper, and it looks to be doin great, musta been too dry before
