Problems with cakes during incubation.
    #2766113 - 06/05/04 02:25 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am currently incubating 10 1/2 pint jars with brf PF tek cakes and today is day 14 of the process. Only 4 of my jars are fully colonized with the ramining ones having spots of no growth for severeal days. There seems to be alot of condensation on the inside of the jar as I can see large water droplets and pools of water. The average temp of my incubator has been 83 degrees. I cannot see any signs of contam that I know of. Is there something I did wrong? Why have my cakes stopped growing in some spots? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Flip your jars. Might be a bit of C02 buildup/lack of oxygen. If there's too much water condensation in spots flipping it can also move those out of the way so the cakes will finish.

Before you flip them make sure there is no tape over the holes.

I usually take the tape off, flip them over and give the jars a swift blow on the bottom (against my hand) to knock the cakes loose from the jars.

Also, to see if the jars are really stalling or not, take a "Sharpie" marker and trace the areas of growth. If the white myc doesn't extend beyond the black line - you've got a stalled one!
