Need some advice
    #3293282 - 10/29/04 12:20 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

hi to all.
i have 7 100% colonised 1/2pint pf-jars (4-cambodian, 3-equador). they are 100% colonised for at least 2 days and they are still in the incubator. i' following pf-tek for simple minds and according to it i have to:
1.leave the jars 5 days in the incubator from when they are 100%,
2.leave them at 20-21C and give them light till i see pins
3. and then birth.
i will birth all of the jars as cakes (no casings) and what i want to do is:
4 jars dunk and roll before 1st flush then dunk and roll after each flush
2 jars dunk and roll after each flush
1 jar leave it without dunking.
i'll put wet vermiculite (2-3cm) on the top of every cake.
my questions are:
should i do what tek says for all the jars?
should i have to wait to see pins till i dunk and roll and birth the 4 jars? what about the others?
do you recommend to do something else?
i know that i can use vermiculite for rolling without sterilise it. is that true? can i sterilise it just by pc dry vermiculite in a jar? if yes for how much time?
thank you

your can dunk your jars or not it doesnt matter,if i where you i would do exactly what your going to do and experament to see which one you like the best.if you want to sterlize the vermaculite which i suggest to do, i would put it in the microwave for like 2-3min in a glass bowl and nuke it.

and what about the cakes that are going to be dunked before birthing? should i have to see pins first then dunk and roll?

I don't really see the point in waiting for pins in the jar before birthing.

i don't know if it's helping somehow or not. but as i wrote i'm following pf-tek for simple minds and that's what it tells. so as i understand you think that leaving the jars for 5-7 days from when they are 100% colonised in the incubator and then dunk and cold shock is the best way if i want to birth them as cakes?
but for the jars that i will not dunk before 1st flush what do you think? should i wait for pins before birthing?

I say birth them all, dunk and roll.. that's what I did, at least.

What is the point of waiting until you see pins in the jar? Is it supposed to reduce the chance of contams or something? How many people actually have their cakes contam before the 1st flush? :confused:

I didn't really think it was an issue.
