Question on my Jars
    #3347747 - 11/11/04 06:20 PM (12 years, 30 days ago)

Okay, well, two days ago I noticed first signs of colonizing.  It was only on one or two jars.  They were at first the size of a pea, now just two days later most spots are the size of a half dollar.  Is this quick, or normal?  Do they colonize quicker, the bigger they get?

Next question.  I have done a very good job at being sterile.  How soon does contamination usually appear?  I hope I'm in the clear with these.

I think thats it, I had another question, but I forgot it.  Thank you. :mushroom2:

yep that's normal :thumbup: they colonize at the same rate the bigger they get. Contams can either get into the jars when you begin, half way, thats the wonder of contams :frown: you'll notice when it comes, it will spread very quickly :thumbup: if it happens remove this jar from the others

lol, great stuff. Well i dont kno how much you know but they might get blue brusing, itll probably look like someone put a sticker on ur cake er casing, that's normal, and yes they can bruise even if u didn't touch em. If it's puffy and blue, well, thats a contam. and that suck, or if it looks real wet and colorized, but it all depends on what ur using, well gl anyways, i hope all goes well.

Yeah keep em warm 86 and dark and mother nature will take care of the rest. If your jars are like in your avatar expect it to take longer for colonization. I used those tall skinny half pints once and it took longer than the short fat ones. But they will go just will take longer. Bummer I know, Good luck with it.

And stop peeking so much. Keep those foil cover on, too.

no. not screwed. Don't panic. It should be okay without it. But if you feel like it, you can sterilize some(or just use as is) foil and put it on now. The verm layer is your protection, foil is just a little bit of insurance.
