incubator idea..sound good?
    #3071418 - 08/30/04 11:51 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

my friend is sick of waiting 40 days for cakes to be fully colinized. she wants to take two rubbermaids and put water in the bottom one with a fish tank heater, then put a tub inside of that one with the jars in it. will this work, and more importantly is this a potential fire hazard in any way?

Done by everyone everywhere and works lovly well. Check out Magashes Rye tek, it inculdes the tub in tub tek. Its pinned to the top of this forum right now and just says "Rye". scroll down through the jar prep its right after that. You throw in some jars in the bottom make sure its fully submergible then watch the water level and temp and you'll be fine.

The heater should be left on all the time. It wont always be putting out heat but you set it at what you need it to get the inner tub to 82-84 like hyphae said. The water will be a different temp so youll need a thermometer and to experiment. Colonization time depends on everything. Strain, water content, substrate, what your starting with. For me using rye grain colonization of cubies (z, cambo and brazil) has been similar. 11-14 days from spores, 8-9 days from agar wedge, 6-7 days from grain to grain transfer with a large spoonful of colonized grain. I also fill my jars quite full with barly any room to shake. Less filled will mean less colonization time. PF jars will take longer (I think).

I just stick a heater in a glass bottle, and put it in the middle of my jars (with H2O2 added of course) works great, and easier to conceal, but my heater has no temp on it, so it's been a bitch to calibrate. Of course with this you'll want to rotate the jars every couple of days. Also remember as myc gets growing lower the temp to about 80, the myc should produce enough heat to pop the substrate up the other 6 degrees.

The substrate only produces a couple of degrees (2F.) FYI Really! :wink:
