Wana help me out?
    #3087643 - 09/03/04 03:41 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys! I innoculated a 1 quart container. It's pretty big so I know it will take awhile till I can case it if it even works and doesn't get contamed. It's been almost 4 weeks and it's slowly, SLOWLY fuzzin. lol First week, a tiny white spot, second, two white spots, third...3 and they were about the size of a quarter. Now the 3 are the size of golf balls and the fourth spot i innoculated at is now starting to show white fuzz. You think it's ok and I should keep on waiting, or what should I do to speed it up? Thanks for your help, Steph

when it grows a little more you may want to shake it up to spread out mycellium and speed things up

Sounds like all you need to do is heat up the jar to 86 degs. Shake it up after you start to see aggressive growth for a few days after the warm up.

Thanks guys! Should I take the tape off the lid? And should I shake it up when it's around 50% or wait till 75%+?

Read any grain tek, you dont use taped holes and you only need one in the center then you tilt the syring to point at the 4 sides. Drill a large 1/4-1/2" hole and stuff some polyfill then wrap the top with foil. You should have some sort of filter materil on them.

Here you can see how the folyfill is done. You shouldnt need coffee filters or tyvek, polyfill and ofil alone alwasy worked contam free for me, but it cant hurt. http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/26004

Shake the jars when there 20-30%

kramer never shakes

just warm them up and check on them in two days
if they take off good for ya don't fuck with them and  they will colonize fast

only if you have at least 1/4 of the jar empty should you even consider shaking

peace and good luck! :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :goodluck: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :slider: :gd_icon:
