Speed Colonization??....air exchange??....something?? :)
    #2304612 - 02/05/04 01:33 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I read a lot about air exchange on here during the incubation stage. I'm wondering if that is becoming a problem for me. I have 6 jars going in my 2-bin system w/the temp around 82-84F. The jars have the lids on tight and are covered only by a layer of tin foil (no tape on the holes underneath). There is also a lid snapped down on the bin the jars are within, then covered with a dark green thick sheet.

It has been 5 days since I inoculated the jars and I haven't seen the slightest growth yet. I may be a little impatient, but I would think I would have at least seen SOME growth. Anyhow, my question is this. Is there anything I should do to speed up the colonization process, or should I just learn some patience and wait it out?? One reason I do have the lid on the bid is because the jars aren't heavy enough to push themselves under the water, so I had to put something heavy on top to push them down. Thanks guys!!

Ok...that's cool then.  I don't have a problem waiting, it's just that I had read where most of the time colonization starts to be noticeable after 3-5 days.  As long as I'm in the clear...it's all good :smile:

I had no growth at all on one of ten BRF jars after two weeks.... I pulled the tape on all of them and they all grew like mad, including the one that showed no growth...

Infact it grew so fast and thick after pulling the tape i thought i mixed them up and it was the wrong jar! haha This has solidified air exchange importance in my mind...So today im gonna go get tyvek and let the jars get air from day one...
