WBS & air exchange?
    #2333349 - 02/14/04 03:19 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I just started some WBS soaking overnight, and I'm interested if by using the same 1/2 pint jars that I've used for PF-Tek and WBS+PF recipes will work for straight WBS.

They're just short 1/2 pint jars with 5 holes punched in the lids big enough for innoculation (I like the middle hole, so sue me). I'm planning on darned near soaking them with liquid mycelium culture (dextrose+water) that's been sitting around for a while.

Now, am I going to run into major ventilation problems (ie: is the seed going to rot and start to ferment on me?), or will it be A-okay?

Please don't tell me that I hafta run out on a Saturday to buy some Tyvek, especially when I've got a pillow sized sack of polly-fill sitting here. I just don't want to buy new lids, or wreck the ones I've got.

I hate to say it but you should run our and buy soem tyvek.... or just use the polyfill.... fill the jars to just below the screw threads and use the polyfill in the lid hols and trim it a little to prevent it touching the substrate... as for soaking it with a liquid culture...bad idea, it's asking for a baccilus contamination... you dont want your grain to be overly wet...make sure you drain it fot at leas 30 minutes to an hour and use spores/liquid culture sparingly...
