I am new to this hobby and just inoculated some jars of rye grain with liquid c. I have a larger model air purifier you can buy at wmart. I have it running on low all the time in a small closet sized room. Is this necessary or beneficial? Was also wondering if a jar of rye can be pc a second time?

We use modified lids to allow gas exchange and prevent contaminant to enter the jar....so during incubation is worthless worry about the sterility of the air in your room or closet....you can ditch that air purifier is totally worthless.

its safer always to test an LC on agar first to make sure is clean before move to grain..

why would u pc a jar two times?



Every piece of information or picture posted has nothing to do with reality.

As long as you have a filter between your grains and the ambient air, the purifier isn’t doing what you think it is.
The air filter is likely not equiped with a filter that’ll stop the flow of tiny mold spores or bacteria anyway... so yeah, not a benefit.  If anything the motor is heating up your closet space some degree.  Which could be good, or bad.

Don't incubate;mycelium is perfectly content at room temp... asking for contamination ... you're comfortable, so are they... Unless stealth is a concern, get them out of that stale-aired closet
