Popcorn
    #1524198 - 05/06/03 12:24 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I just inoculated 10 jars of popcorn with AMA and I was wondering if I should tape the holes on the lids to keep them sterile. Is that necessary?  :confused:

That's a fine little shroom!!!

popcorn is a grain. they need air exchange, but it needs to be filtered air exchange - polyfill, tyvek etc.

if you forgot to allow for this, hopefully you have plenty of little holes you can now cover with a breathable tape like micropore. if you only have only tiny hole, er.... :frown:

Coffee filter might not be enough, try adding a layer of tyvek rubberbanded to the top (you could prob doze in R-OH, to be safe- dont think its necessary tho) or cover with a foil layer. Suggestion only

I only have one small hole in my grain jars. It is about 2mm in dia. How badly is that going to affect colonization.

I've kept the innoc holes covered for about 6 generations of the dudes and had no problems. Also one time I made bigger holes in the tops and stuffed them w/ some polyfil to act as a cork to innoc through. I didn't notice an obvious advantage there.
