NOOB STRIKES AGAIN
    #2761235 - 06/03/04 09:23 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

i'm such a noob...my first verm/brf mix was way too wet (looked like soggy oatmeal) and i decided that after i filled the jars so i dumped it all out and made a new mix.  the new mixture was much drier than i initially expected but it looks like the pictures so i think it's all good for now (at least until i attempt to innoculate  :shiftyeyes:).

i covered my jars with a double thick layer of aluminum foil (instead of the lids the jars came with) and another single layer of aluminum foil (i guess to keep things sterile before and after i innoculate).  i see that some people's grow logs have the double layer of foil rubberbanded to the jar...is this necessary? should i apply rubber bands so this aluminum "lid" stays tight around the glass?

thank you for helping out a total noob...sorry if i'm asking too many rudimentary/annoying questions.

I divided my jars up. Six with foil as you described and six with the jar lids. The six with foil acting as a lid colonized a week faster than the other six. I didnt bother using rubber bands either. I used 1/2 pint jars and had no contams.

You don't need rubber bands.

I suggest you use heavy duty tape, thats all you need, you dont need foil.
My last sterilazation process, I taped 11 jars with heavy duty tape, after the boiling process NONE got water in, they all came out perfect, and were done colonizing in 1 1/2 weeks, amazed even me.

exactly what type of tape do you suggest? what's the brand/make?

you still use a layer of foil to cover the holes in the tape after you innoculate right?

the holes should be exposed or tyvek`d, or even a coffee filter. the air exchange will allow the mycelia to breathe and colonize faster.

well i just innoculated and put the jars in a rubbermaide container w/ a lid wrapped in a sweatshirt...you are saying that i should take the layer of foil off to expose the other layer of foil w/ the holes in it? wouldn't that expose the jar to contams?

If your done sterilizing the jars, and already injected them, I suggest you cover the holes with a heavy dity tape, till its about 50% done, then remove the tapes and put coffee filter on so the myc can breathe and colonize faster, but dont remove it before because you'll have more chance of contams.
