Are these cakes doomed?
    #1534719 - 05/09/03 03:12 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

First-time cultivator. Due to many long hours at work, I asked a friend to do the sterilization of the jars. I specifically told him to re-read the MMGG before he started.

When I finally dragged my ass home late that night, I discovered he had misplaced a step: he had not placed the top layer of vermiculum in the jars. They had cooled, and he then opened the jars and placed the top layer in each and re-sealed them. I didn't learn of this until after I had innoculated. Is there any hope at all for these cakes?

You can't open the cakes in an unsterile enviornment after you sterilize them. This makes them not sterile.

Ooo that sucks man, they could possibly not be contaminated, it's all chance. I know how you feel though, my friends are fucking retards too.

dont let ur friends do ur shit fo u ever, it doesnt work, unless they know more than u do. ur cakes are probaby going to be contaminated because ur filter layer to prevent contams from entering is now composed of unsteril verm, and will no doubt introduce contams itself. Sorry~but hey , if at first u dont succeed

Yea, when you sterilize the jars, you can't add anything. Have you innoculated yet? If not, just re-sterilize htem with teh dry verm n there.
