When colonizing a WBS jar, whats the best...?
    #1776043 - 08/03/03 06:36 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I'm getting ready to prepare some jars of WBS and was wondering if using polyfil would work as a filter in the inoculation hole? I'm not to sure about air exchange when using WBS. Any other ideas on preparing WBS jars would be greatly appreciated!

I have one whole in the lid of my WBS jars. The hole is stuffed with polyfill. I innoculate through the polyfill and have had no problems. Just make sure the needle goes all the way through the polyfill.

my FOAF has never had any contam problems and FOAF uses no filters...just tape the holes and crack the jars a bit...and leave tinfoil on, both pf and popcorn.

Thanks, just wanted to be sure! Think I'm gonna try a "straw log" with some WBS spawn. Sounds really easy to do and few problems with contams!
