Speed benefits of simmering?
    #2696937 - 05/18/04 05:16 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have finally built a proper tub in tub incubator and have recently started working with grains (wbs) over the last 2 months. Normally I just soak for 24 hours and load up the jars. My question is does simmering speed up colonization? Even with the incubator, I have noticed slower than average growth. Everything usually starts off great, but slows down after the jars reach about 80%. I incubate at about 82F and it takes about 3.5 weeks to colonize. Any suggestions?

Try tipping your jars upside down, the Co2 will drain out through the polyfil and they'll finish up.

Convert Metric and Imperial.
