Moisture in jars. Pics added.
    #2537207 - 04/07/04 11:52 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hi all,
Got a question for you from a first timer. My jars are colonizing nicely but today (5days after colonizing started) I noticed that there is some moisture buildup on the inside of my jars. Is this normal? Just wondering since the colonization seems to have slowed down a ton. Thanks!

ya its normal..long as they dont look soaked you should be fine. the myc is prolly colonizing inside the jar more so it seems the outside has slowed...just give em time

you will have moisture buildup.. they shouldnt get soak..if they do it maybe bacerial rot crap.

Next time try a lil less water in your mixture.

how far along are the jars? 20,50,60%?

And also, to avoid this question if it does in fact rise, if your myc starts to have little yellowish spots, no worries either. That's just where the water has gotten onto the myc and bruised it.

The jars are about 40% I would say. No yellow spots yet. The Myc seems white as snow.

did you shake them? when they seem that the outside will hold together flip the jar over and give it a smack...then let it incubate like that
