Ran out of Verm for top layer
    #2450046 - 03/19/04 02:11 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I ran out of verm. I had just enough to make 12 - 1/2 pint jars. and once I had it all mixed and started filling jast I was like something feels weird... something is not rite :wtf: then it hit me I need a verm layer :blush:

well I figured I would not wast the 6 cups of verm and 3 cups of BRF on nothing so I filled the jars and did not use the safty layer of verm... I am using tyvek tho so I hope that will help keep my jars contam free.

What do you think? Is the verm layer 100% necessicary?

thanks, fungi x  :beer:

Not 100%, but it does help.

Place the jar in the incubator and try not to check them
daily, as it would increase the chances for a contam.
With a polyfill you should be ok, sm proposed a shakeable
jar by usin' it :thumbup:

I let them site in the PC overnight. I removed them today @ about 2:00pm and hurred up and innoculated. Then moved them directly to the incubator. I will check them in about 7 days. The spore syringes i used are about 2 months old tho :smirk: Hope they are still good.

You really don't need the top verm layer, it doesn't make a huge difference. Although it never hurts to be extra carful.
