WBS questions?
    #1843187 - 08/23/03 01:27 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

AFOAF has a whole bunch of leftover half pint jars after moving on to grain with quart jars. However, could these half pints still be used and if so would room still need to be left to shake or would they be birthed as cakes? The reason for his interest in this is for economical sake.
Also when the WBS is colonizing should it be entirely white like every piece caked in white or should there just be some mycelium on every piece?

Id say just stick with the quart jars. you would still probably need room in the half pints to shake them and I am pretty sure birthin them as cakes wouldnt work to well due to the grains not being able to retain moisture as well without the all important casing layer.

i think if u wanted u could use the smaller jars(leave shaking space), but after working with grain for awile u will notice urself that ud be wanting to go bigger and store the other jars away or sell to a friend.
every piece of the grain should have mycelium on it.
i could help u a little more if u tell me how long it has been colonizing and when u shaked it and stuff.

I recently pondered this same question and decided to try it out with popcorn.

Leaving enough room to shake, I PCed 15 1/2 pint jars of popcorn and innoculated them.

My reasons were the same as yours with one exception. I thought that with less popcorn to colonize, the jars would colonize quicker.

Either they aren't any quicker or I didn't get the water content right because they are taking forever to colonize.

I think that by the time they are fully colonized it will have been two 1/2 weeks, which is a crazy amount of time for popcorn to colonize.

The point is that it will work, but that I haven't found any definate advantage beside still having a use for your old 1/2 pint jars.

they have been colonizing for a week and a half. Every piece of birseed has some white on it but they are not all covered in white after the jars are shaken. ABout every 2-4 days they are shaken. So should they be spawned now or wait until every piece is covered in white?

first off stop shaking too much, and wait till its fully colonized. it doesnt HAVE to be, but its better and less risk of contams
