Light being used as an Incubator
    #2705950 - 05/20/04 03:44 PM (14 years, 4 days ago)

In another thread someone mentioned that using a light as an incubator might initiate pinning...

Basically, I have all of my jars (around 20) in a big tub that I'm going to use for fruiting about half my cakes straight, and I wanted to know if it's okay that I'm using a heat lamp as an incubator. My jars aren't fully colonized yet, but as long as I'm just going to birth the jars and then fruit them immediately it's cool that I'm using a heat lamp for incubation, right?

If it's okay, then what situations would it NOT be okay to use a heat lamp for incubation?

Do you have a thermometer? Depending on the size of your heat lamp, it might get too hot. 85 degrees is about the upper limit; a cheap lamp timer will make your life easier.

I used a 40w light bulb in a rubbermaid, and put the cakes in a shoebox so they'd stay dark (they won't incubate if there's lots of light!!!). The temperature stayed plenty high, especially if i threw a blanket over the box.

Yeah I have a thermometer, it is constantly between 84-86F

Why do you say they won't incubate if there is lots of light? The temperature will still be at 84-86 degrees.

DOH! How much are aquarium heaters? :frown:

I suppose I could just put the lid on the tub and keep the thermom on the inside... this sucks :frown:

This is post number 420 for me, yay :smile:
