How to revitalize stalled BRF jars?
    #27129710 - 01/06/21 06:18 AM (1 month, 19 days ago)

Are there any tricks one can do to make stalled BRF jars colonize further?

I got three jars of one batch and one of them stopped showing growth at 80% for like a week or two, the other two are at 95% showing good growth thou

U can maybe try inject some sterile water to the stalled area of the jars :shrug:

Other than that, there isnt much u can do.

You can just wash off the uncolonized parts and do whatever you're doing with the cakes afterwards (birth/shred to bulk).

If they stalled out,  it's pretty likely that contamination is the cause and there's just nothing you'll be able to do.  Give it a little more time and if it doesn't colonize further within a week,  cut off the uncolonized portion and spawn it (as mentioned by Pearl).  Given that it is likely contaminated (based on your description/without a good photo),  you want to keep an eye on it after spawning.  Sometimes cakes slow a bit towards the end and some grow at different rates, but a stalled cake that was prepared properly is almost always stalled due to contaminants.  People used to flip them to get them to finish but that is outdated and compromises the verm barrier.  Probably not lacking water.  I prep cakes dry AF and they finish like clockwork.

Sorry, i meant to say one of the main reasons for stalling is PF material being too dry. But stalling can be caused by the substrate being too wet. The fix for this is patience as the cake slowly dries out over time due to gas exchange thru the inoculation holes. Another condition that occurs is what i call "cake fracturing". Its when the growing mycelium cant reach a fractured part of the cake (material too loose, inconsistent cake shape).

Infections can also stall a cake but usually thats quite obvious from looking at the mycelium itself and seeing it compete with an infectious contaminent.

Yes, if your jar stalls, and u see no further growth, u can proceed to the next step as long as no visible infections are present on the cake.

Maybe loosen the cover to increase gas exchange... If it's contaminated there's not much to do though.

I agree with what pearl said as well.

Alright guys, thanks for your time. I have made some pics

The good ones: :thumbup:


The bad one: :thumbdown:



No worries, the green at the edge of the mycelium is just a neon marker to track the growth (made yesterday, so not much to see yet)

As for the GE, all jars had one or two 5mm holes, I have made the holes wider to like 8mm two days ago. They are covered with one layer of micropore tape

All jars seem to show a healthy hydrophobic sweat, the stalled one maybe a bit less thou
