Screwed up the ratio
    #3024021 - 08/19/04 04:53 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Okay, I was rushing and obviously had my head up my ass when I made a batch of PF jars. I mixed equal parts flour and vermic by mistake. Didn't realize it until I had already sterilized the jars, then it hit me. Can I still innoc. the jars or will the moisture content be to low to work. I was going to case once colonized, so longterm moisture content shouldn't be a factor. I just hate to waste a batch of jars, remix, etc... Anybody else done this? :cussing: :cussing:

everybody's worried about ratio this and that, pay attention next time you ration, to the consistancy and you won't have to be worried about ratios. You'll be able to mix up any amount...by eye...and it will work just fine.

I don't know man, if anything the extra brf could be a concern....if it was me, and this is strictly my opinion, I'd add a bit more water if it was dry and try it, you never know (assuming you have the time to experiment and extra spores to go around). Allow the mycellium to colonize a little longer though maybe to allow the fungus to colonize all the ecess nutrients...if you fruit too early the extra brf could be colonized by mold or another contaminant, and that would be shitty! I say give it a go, but if you don't have time and energy to waste, just start again.

I mixed 3c vermic, 3c brf and 1 1/2c water. The mix looked a little on the dry side, but felt moist enough when I took a pinch from the mix. That's what started me thinking while I was sterilizing, because I ended up with enough mix for 8 half pint jars instead of 6. Anyway, I'm just gonna shoot the jars and keep an eye on them. Instead of 1cc per jar, I'll use 2cc for added moisture. I've got enough spores to make plenty more. We'll see what happens.

When MF made his first batch of jars he made them seperetly.

1/2 cup BRF

1/4 cup VERM

1/4 cup Water

He did 3 jars total..1/2 pints.

seems like ther was too much water,HE used exactly 59 ml (cc's-1/4 cup) of water.Pc'd and Innoc'd 3 jars...two jars contaminate and are discarded.

He made a second batch of 3,only this time using about40-45 ml of water.Soaking the verm then adding BRF.Jars looked much drier then the previous.He pc'd.let cool overnight.Jars looked the same.Later on that day he Inocc'd and put jars in incubator(shoebox recieving 82F temp).

Three days have passed and he saw mycelium colonizing about 10 percent of the jars.Much faster and healthier growth than the others.The other jars are fine.He thinks it was because of the water content being off it slowed the groth down.

Well, it's been 4 days and I've got mycelial growth in all jars. The jars look dry as shit, no condensation inside, and its' a little hard to see the growth because of the light color of the mix. Just gonna let them run and see what happens. I've been tempted to shoot in a little sterile water, but I'm going to control myself and just see if the jars will colonize.
