    #2009583 - 10/14/03 10:38 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

my buddy recently innoculated some grain jars with siringes that have been sittin in his 90* closet for the past 3 monthes. So far all his jars got green mold within 3 days. Could this be due to the siringes themselves? the grain he is using is popcorn soaked for a day then pc'd for 70min.

Do the contams seem to stem from the inoculation points? That would indicate a possibly contaminated syringe. If the jars are getting contaminated in random spots around the jar, it is probably a substrate (ie. sterilization) problem. Thats it,

I have never known why people like popcorn so much. Popcorn aint that great compared to the PF tek, much more contam resistant.

it does seem to stem from the innoculation points. When he prepares the substrate he usually boils it for a good hour or so before pressure cooking, so a lot of the kernals are split open, I dunno if this has anything to do with it but he has heard that the more whole kernals the better.

Burst kernels might infect more easily than whole kernels.
You should do a slow boil with a low flame, 30-45 minutes is enough, then PC it.
