Condensation in jars that bad?
    #331226 - 06/01/01 02:04 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I have the jars, with tape over the holes at about 80 degrees in a dark place. Im noticing not much, but a noticable amount of condensation inside the jars. I heard this is to be avoided. I think Im suposto allow for more air circulation inside the jars. But to loosen the jar lids, I would have to take the tape off or even open the jars up and expose them to the air for a few seconds. How dangerous is that for infection?

Thanks..

Patience my friend...
There's not much you can do now.
Did you add the correct amount of H2O to your mix?
If so, then jsut relax and forget about your jars for about 20 days....
Good luck my friend...

chill! condensation inside the jars is to expected not avoided! ever since i started using full pint jars i have been condensation when almost fully colonized. this is just the mycellium respiring (they breathe the same way we do, not like plants). if it becomes a real bother you might like to turn your jars upside down and tap the bottom (now top) as the beads of water will run down the sides of the mycellium and into the vermiculite seal which is dry anyways.

i wouldn't worry bout it if i were you :)

Get the tape off those jars, you'll be fine. Could try flipping the jars too, seems to work for me...

I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains

PEACE
