Is there something I'm doing wrong?
    #2629310 - 05/02/04 10:37 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I innoculated my Jars March 20 and they still haven't filled to the bottom they are about a 1/2 inch from the bottom and still have the bottom to fill. I've kept them in my closet at a constant 80+or-2 degrees. I thought they would take only a month at the most to complete is there something I might be doing wrong other than not being patient? :frown:

There is a possibility that a bacterial infection has settled in on the substrate at the bottom of your jars. Dont pitch them or anything I just wanted to let you know it is a possibility. You should try doing as MoNk suggested and flip them over to aid in air exchange first and if they dont proceed after a while you will have to consider the fact that they may have some kind of infection. Usually if there is bacteria in the jar that area of the substrate will look really dark and wet. I hope you just need some air exchange. You have waited so long !!

Yes I'm hoping that the air exchange will help, I was weary of trying that technique after reading that the rush of air draw in bacteria.

If you want to set your mind at ease a little just wipe the top of the jars good with a paper towel slightly damp with alcohol and put a couple of coffee filters(or tyvek is much better)over the jars and secure them with a rubber band. That way you dont have to worry about the air you suck in causing you problems. Best of luck to ya!
