Rolling Around Grains in Jar
    #24793812 - 11/19/17 04:53 PM (10 months, 26 days ago)

I inoculated two rye grain jars with a MS syringe in hopes that one of them is clean enough to G2G later. I have a few grains with fungi growing on them loose from the main mass of mycelium.

My question is would rolling the loose grains on top to the other side be beneficial by helping start colonizing the other side of the jar, or would that damage the mycelium and cause stalling?

Is rolling the grains around the same as shaking them?

If it would damage the mycelium, I'll wait until 30% colonized, but of course I would like to give it all the help I can give. Thanks!

Shaking grain jars breaks up the mycelium into many different pieces spreading throughout and colonizing faster, while reconnecting with the other pieces.

Shaking also redistributes moisture.

Update: Rolling around the grains definitely help colonize the other side of the jar and lead to faster colonization overall, thanks for the advice!
