post-inoculation questions
    #3274058 - 10/25/04 03:58 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

After innoculating the spores into the substrate I know that you're supossed to keep it around 75-85 degrees and that you are supossed to allow it to breathe. How do you let it breathe while still leaving the aluminum foil on it? I've heard that you can twist the lid of the jar 1/4 of a turn or so, but I think that was just from a post, not the actual FAQ. Also, whats the ideal humidity for mycelial growth? Thanks :smile:

Just leave it how it is, dont loosen the lid or anything (could introduce contams!) If there is a hole or two in the lid it should have more than enough air exchange.

Should I still leave the aluminum foil on the lids? Even though the lids have holes in them wont the foil stop it from breathing?

The foil doesnt stop too much air flow, as long as its not air tight its fine, the foil wont hurt it at all, dont worry. Last thing you want is contams and removing the foil could do that.

I'm going to go ahead and bump this rather than make a new thread because my question is fairly stupid and simple. When using the PC before you put the weight on (when youre waiting for steam to come out the vent for the first 15 mins) it says to let it exhaust for one minute. How are you supossed to let it exhaust? Do you turn the heat all the way off or something?

Nah, just let it run for a minute or so or until its a steady strong steam. Then put the weight on.
