rehydrating innoculated jars
    #1881965 - 09/04/03 07:11 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

OK I know I've about read this before on a diff thread - my friend innoced 5 1/2 pint jars with TC, 11 days ago, and they are not doing much, maybe some small signs of growth but hard to tell. Followed the same EXACT procedures he used with a set of MAZ jars and had great success with those. Same incubator, same setting, same sterile procedures for innoc. Same verm, brf, water ratio. Thes ejars however look a little dry to him. Is it a good idea to inject some sterilized water to rehydrate the jars a little? Any body had any luck with this? Thanks!!

Deep into that darkness peering long I stood there wondering fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dreamed before....

I would wait a few more days, i've seen jars take 2-3 weeks untill they took off.



Stay Kool, and enjoy the bus ride.....

If you must inject sterile water to re-hydrate a jar, it can be done. Make sure the water is as sterile as you can get it. Pressure cook some in a jar, or microwave the hell out of it. Don't forget some type of filter so it does not suck in contaminants while the jar cools. Also be careful that you do not inject too much water. This is worse than having a dry jar...

I have done this before with WBS that was dry. It did help, but I think it?s risky. I have never had a failure, but then again I only did it to a few jars, and was a cautious as can be.

Be careful when microwaving water for longer than 4 minutes. If possible, do it on 50% power. Microwaves superheat the water, causing it to melt/crack the container that its in.
