need help with bulk substrate ideal temp
    #2338033 - 02/15/04 05:53 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

a few questions.. 1) after spawning into the dung, is room temperature sufficient to colonization and casing phases?

2) can I keep the quart WBS jars right-side-up throughout their colonization? some say to invert them at 80% colonized. just wondering if the juice will trickle out the filter..

thank you

1. yes, room temp is fine.

2. no need to invert grain jars. juice?

1) Manure creates heat internally while colonizing so keeping it at room temp will be fine
2) If you are using tyvek filters no liquid will escape because they allow air to pass but not moisture. I don't turn my jars but I do shake them after they reach 80%. Any clue what the benefits of having them upside down would have?

Isn't it better to have it in incubation through the colonization of the substrate, and growth through the casing layer though? But both will work?

you shouldn't incubate during the colonization of your bulk substrate. it generates enough heat on its own. incubating it will make it too warm.
