Not a typical mushroom smell, which is not good. But I am now sure that colonization is still proceeding and looks very healthy. If it colonizes 100%, I would assume that everything is ok? Am I correct in assuming this? I boiled the jars for an hour, didn't pressure cook. Does rye go bad faster than brown rice flour? Hmmm... I wonder.

hi... did you leave the holes taped after innoc? you left the foil on, but did you retape them after?

No, I didn't tape the holes at all. I just left the foil on. Should I have taped the holes? And how long should the tape be left on? Is taping the holes important?

hi :) i'm sorry to have freaked you out. the pf tek says to retape the holes after innoc, while mmgg recommends foil over the top instead. HQ has always taped the holes during sterilization (she was a boiler too) as well as after innoc... she just noticed the difference btw the 2 today when rechecking herself about taping. perhaps we could get some opinions as to taping vs foil method? i never thought there was a big difference btw the mmgg & pf, but this is one... don't freak out though :) i'm sure others who havn't taped can tell you it's okay. mmgg seems to allow for the air exchange required for growth, but since the verm seal cannot be as effective as a a filter is for air exchange- perhaps this is the reason for taping... to keep air as well as contams out (?) also, since the water ratio is so exact in the substrate, there may be a question of keeping the water content correct & in the jar, as opposed to possible evaporation? (these are guesses though)... i'm sure more experienced people can tell you the intentions of taping though. but since you followed the mmgg ... should be fine ... HQ's never smelled rye flour as a replacement before, so couldn't tell you about strange odours. and, what else can you do but wait and see? (her opinion only).

so far no tape on top is working for me, but as soon as i'm done here I think i'll tape half. I'd hate for all my toil as a ninja to be fruitless
