dry verm in jar, 2/3 colonized. 1/3 not. what to do?
    #3248297 - 10/12/04 07:40 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey all, I have 5 jars colonizing just fine, but one of them seems to have dried out a bit, only 2/3 has colonized, and the verm at the top 1/3 is bone dry. if i turn the jar around it moves, and isn't sticking. No contams so far, but I'm not sure if I should wait a week or so more and birth. I'm thinking of waiting to make sure the good part colonizes completly and then cutting away the rest with a hot knife, or something. advice please! thank you!

also, i should add, that I'm using polyfill as my contam barrier, not dry verm :-) otherwise this question would be pointless.. heh.

I in the past had jars that went to dry for one reason or another. You can use sterial water and inject 5 cc's into the center of your cakes. Wait a day and inject 3 more cc's.

Had a dry one just boiled water, sucked into syringe which i then placed in a bagie of ice to cool quickly.. injected whole syringe into jar.. 2 days later it took off!  :cool:  I felt one injection was 1/2 the risk for contams as 2  :smile:

Just don't throw your moisture content too far off or you will get contams. My suggestion would be a four angle injection threw the single hole 2-3cc at each angle for a half pint jar total of 8-12cc's. GL guys
