incubation temperature question
    #2958582 - 08/03/04 01:46 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

During the incubation period i read in the PF Tek Method that the incubation temp should constantly be around 70
degrees, but later today someone told me that it should be around 82-84 degrees. Which one should it be!!?? I dunno thats y i'm asking.
What should the proper temperature be if I won't be around to watch over it (I'm going to Banff while the germination and colonization
should occurr)? Could someone please tell me?

the incubation temps should be in the low 80's, frioting temps are around 70

if the incubation temps are low it simply means it will take a little longer to colonize

ive always been told and read between 80-85 degrees is optimal (ive even read here as specific as 84-86 for cub, 80-85 for others).  i usually set my tub-tub thermometer at about 80 and right now in the summer the incubator stays between 83 at night and 85 durring the day.  which is great (and cost me a whole 30$ to build, an excellent investment).  it also makes cold shocking your cakes easier when you go to take them out of the jars -- the 5-10 degree drop from an incubated temperature to a normal room temperature combined with the light and oxygen will help you with pinning.

i think the spores/mycelium can start to die from heat death in the mid 90's but i did see one grow log that survived 100+ -- but honestly there is no reason it should be getting that high.  if you live in an area where it can get entirely too hot durring the day i would hope you'd have an air conditioner :smile:

though its true, like prisoner said, colonizing in the lower 80's and upper 70's is fine, all it will do is take a bit longer to colonize.  when you're doing something small and contained like jars its not a big deal how fast, as an extra week probably wont raise your chances of contams much if at all.

I have seen mycelium survive in the high 90s, I believe that 106 is the accepted temp of death for mycellium, spores are much more durable, I had some that were given to a friend that spent 2 summers in temps above 105F and a low of 8F

82-84 for incubation anything out of this range will be slower. Also something to keep in mind actual substrate temps will be 2 degrees higher than ambient air temps also thermo death limits are reached at 103 degrees. As far as fruiting 70 degrees will really slow down fruit production! 74-77 is optimum for fruiting :wink: that little 4-7 degree increase makes a big difference btw IME.  GL herby
