lack of oxygen?
    #2524480 - 04/04/04 03:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hi my jars seemed to have slowed way down in the colinization process. They are about 4 weeks into colonizing and it seems like they just dont want keep going anymore. I have a feeling this is due to lack of oxygen. The only problem is that in the beginning i forgot to put a top 1/2 layer of verm to help keep out contams. Now i was thinking i would just take the tape off of the holes on top to let oxygen into the jars to help the colonize but then the substrate would be open to all the air. I was wondering if this was a good idea since, most of the top of the jars have already colonized or if this will easily contaminate my jars.

if your really worried just fasten either some tyvek or a few coffe filters over the hole and flip them once and a while for air exchange.BTW i would deffinatly dunk those before fruiting once they are done colonizing,after that long they are probably somewhat dehydrated.

I really dont think anyone is understanding what i am saying. What i mean is that the only protection i have from the air to the substrate is that peice of tape since i dont have a top layer of verm. All i want to know is it safe to take that tape off of my jars so i can get some air exchange.

we get what your saying you dont get us.Get some tyvek free from the post office,cut a small piece so its ready and when you take off the tape,fasten the tyvek over the hole,its simple man.if the entire top of the cakes is colonized anyway,that tenth of a second between the time you remove the tape and the time you cover with tyvek isnt gonna make a differance,they will be fine.then flip them once in a while for gas exchange forcing out the CO2 and letting in the O2,and when done colonizing dunk.
The tyvek will let the air pass,but no contams,thats why it is iused on grains,with no verm barrier.

ahh alright, sorry for the confusion. Also the word tyvex kind of rings a bell but what exactly is it? Sorry if you find this to be a stupid question.

I just cut a circle out of it so it covers the whole top of my jar and then tape it to the lid?

yep thats it.works great.as long as it covers the hole,it doesnt have to be as big as the lid,just tape it down good,and have it ready when you remove the tape. :thumbup:
