Tape remains after inoculation?
    #2169706 - 12/08/03 09:13 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I was curious to know if I should put the tape back back on the holes on the jars after inoculation, before I put it in the incubator, to help keep out contams?

Or should I keep the tape off?

Keep it on.  It can't hurt if you put the tape back.  Not 100% sure if it hurts with it off...  But I know it doesn't hurt putting it back on :smile: 

Better safe than sorry.

Does it need any sort of air exchange during colonization?

air is good
tape is bad

some folks will leave tape over the holes till a certain percentage of colonization is reached and then take it off to help things finish up.

Personally, I never use any tape. I leave the foil covers from PCing on until birthing and actually loosen the lids a bit. Just keep your jars in a clean covered container and don't fool with them too much.

It's basically a judgement call and you will hear all kinds of personal preference. If you end up leaving tape on, you'll prolly be removing it due to stalled jars sooner or later. At least that's what I hear. Not using tape, I don't have that problem.

put the tape back on until it is 80% colonized. then it is ok to remove it.
