Pf Tek - Stalled jars?
    #26689649 - 05/23/20 06:26 AM (13 days, 15 hours ago)

Hello!

I have some PF tek jars that I started on April 16th

A lot of them are at 50-75% colonization and have stopped.

Some of the mycelium at the top has a blue hue to it.

ONE of the jars from this batch managed to reach 100% a few days ago and I birthed, dunked and rolled it.

Is this perhaps that the jar doesn't have enough moisture inside it?

Any help is amazing!!

Thanks!!

If you followed the the BRF tek properly you should not be lacking water content https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/24179086 check this link and scroll down to step 2 (field capacity).

IMO thats mold since ive never seen bruising on brf jars.
Colonize jars at 75-82F but never above 82F

Stalling could most likely be due to a hidden contaminant, even with a less than favourable water content the mycelium should still attempt to colonise it. I have had success in the past (although not recommended) by flipping my jar and gently hitting my hand holding the upside down jar into my other palm to slide the cake down onto the lid and then sit it down and let it colonise the rest of the cake.

Always allow a week for your cakes to consolidate before birthing, this in turn will aid a quicker transition into fruiting mode of the cake once birthed. One thing I always made sure of during pf tek was to set the cake down in the FC the same way up as it colonised, although, don't see this recommended to people much anymore.
