Shrunken substrate in colonizing jars
    #2528928 - 04/05/04 08:46 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have a couple of BRF cakes colonizing right now and I noticed when I flipped them that some of the cakes-in-the-making slid down to the top of the container because the substrate had apparently contracted a bit. Did they get dehydrated somehow or have other people experienced this? Is it problematic?

That is normal for brf to do. Dont worry.

Remember that the growing myc is eating the brf and using up moisture. Otherwords it's normal.

Hmm, I neglected to mention that about a week into colonization, the jars spent a few hours at 100 degrees because I was unfortunately away on a really hot day. I've heard thermal death occurs at 106 and they seemed to be okay for awhile (continued colonizing), but now it looks like most of the jars have stalled. I've flipped them but growth has all but ceased. Should I continue or cut my losses and start over?
