air exchange problem
    #2838822 - 06/29/04 08:14 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)


I have a few grain jars , but the problem is with the air exchange . Lids have only 5 holes that i used to inoculate the jars , under the holes is a filter paper to prevent any bacteria from coming in the jars .

Good thing is that the holes are about 0.5 cm big so i was thinking about turning the jars upside down ... Would this work with so small holes ? The O2 should raise on the top of the jars and the CO2 should escape through tha holes ...

A alternative air exchange method would be to fan the lids of the jars so the air could change and circulate ...

What do you think ?

Turning them upside down would work just fine.

i may have to agree that an ultrasonic does not supply much air, as i seem to be seeing a slowdown in growth sometimes. But mind you its only running for 1 min every four hours. im thinking of changing this to 5 min every 12 hours.... it may end up wetting the caseing if on for that long at once though, but would definitely help air exchange

no way, i tried 5 min every 6 hours before, and the cakes formed dropplets on them.
