Please critique - need to know if should proceed
    #2405848 - 03/06/04 02:12 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

My foaf has started working with WBS for the first time. So far he has followed Six Tango's WBS tek almost to the letter, except that because of time constraints he was only able to soak the WBS for a little over 4.5 hours. When he shook the jars (after PCing for 1:15) they didn't really look any different than when they went into the cooker and no clumps appeared to have formed.

His spore supply is quite limited, and he doesn't want to waste any. Is the soak time a problem? Should he, basically, try to knock up these jars?

IMO, your WBS is too dry. 6T WBS Tek says to soak 8-12 hours. Grain need to absorb the water and this takes some time. Personally, I soak WBS 24 hours cause I?ve experienced slow/stalled growth and a very fine transparent looking mycellium growing in jars that were too dry.

Edit: About your spore supply, there is the FSRE and FSRC. You can do a little Honey Tek or Karo, agar, g2g.

The seed maybe a little dry. Just use half
your syringe on these, and the other half
when you have more patients :tongue:

If they do dry out too much, you can always
add 5ml of clean water with a syringe.
But for now, I think you'll be ok with a 4.5 hour soak,
just next time soak for LONGER.

If it were me I would just re-make the jars. You should always try to use optimal conditions. Its worth it in the end.
