LIFE OF GRAIN JARS @ ROOM TEMP
    #2861039 - 07/06/04 11:14 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

From the point a jar of grain is fully colonized, if left at room temperature (20C or 68F), how long does the mycelia remain virile for spawning or G2G tranfers?

Depends on the grain. Millet and birdseed jars will keep even for 4-5 months, while colonized rye deteriorates fast and is often very disintegrated(digested) only 2 months after colonization.
Better though to use the grain immediately after it is completely colonized or to store it in the fridge.

I'm using WBS, but are you sure about 4-5 months? I've kept some jars for almost 2 months are fully colonized, and the mycelia looks as if it's dried out. I guess my question now is, how do you tell if the jar starts to die out?
