100% contamination free cakes?
    #2073024 - 11/05/03 01:38 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Is it possible to wait for a week or so before innoculting your jars?
The reason that I ask is that I figure that this should allow you to see if any contams survived. Seems harder to contaminate a cake in the innoculation process than at any other point. You could even do it in a glove box.

Yes, this can be done, but pf jars aren't completely impervious to contamination through the dry verm layer, so it is better to innoculate as soon as possible. This way the mycelium gets a foothold before any contams and has more of a chance of fighting them off. If you pc your jars, you shouldn't worry too much about contams anyway. A pc will kill just about anything in a brf jar.

yes waiting a week can actually be a good idea if you have been having problems with contamination or no growth. You can see to make sure that properly sterilized your jars and that if you are getting contamination later in your project you will know that it was not from improper sterilization of the jars but some other step in your process, innoculating, storing, wrong ratio, etc.
