Tape on jars-when to remove?
    #2571487 - 04/17/04 06:09 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

My jars stalled 4 weeks into colonization (PF tek)and I haven't removed the tape from the holes yet...I was told to leave the tape on the holes, but when should I remove them? Is this the reason you think it stalled, or could there be another variable?

Yes it is most likely the reason,take the tape off,and flip your jars.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

Do what butternut said but make sure the jars fall away from the glass, flip them and then hit the bottom end against you palm so they can get some new oxygen and then they will take off. :laugh:

I usually take the tape off a week into colonization. I'm not worried about contams, since I rarely check on the jars (maybe once a week tops), and this way they never really slow down due to air exchange.
