PREPARING JARS EARLY
    #3380338 - 11/18/04 06:03 PM (12 years, 21 days ago)

SO I HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE EXPERIENCED GROWERS...WOULD IT BE OKAY TO START PREPARING JARS ABOUT 4-5 DAYS BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE SPORES? WILL THERE BE ANY EFFECT ON THE GROWTH AND HEALTH OF MYCELIUM? AND WILL THERE BE A HIGHER CHANCE OF CONTAMINATION BY LETTING THEM SET FOR A FEW DAYS BEFORE?

ALSO I WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD BE OKAY TO STERILIZE JARS MORE THAN ONCE...WILL THAT EVAPORATE SOME OF THE WATER IN THE JARS?
BUT MAINLY I WANT TO KNOW IS IT OKAY TO PREPARE THEM EARLY...AS LONG AS THERE STERILE THEY WILL BE OKAY RIGHT?

PLEASE RESPOND AS I AM TRYING TO DO JUST THIS NOW.

Caps = BAD... anyways, its ok, once the shit is pressure cooked, it should be sterile... its just good to get it done that way the myc can start colonizing before anything bad might have a chance to get in ther... good luck dude.

Ok to answer your questions, lets explain it in realistic terms. Standard pf tek jars (whether your doing pf, or grain jars) sometimes are incubated for 30+ days at the extreme. Whether the spores are there or not is pretty irrelevant. Get your jars ready and keep them somewhere sterile and dark. Best to keep temps low, even though there should be no contaminants no sense in giving a suitible enviornment for them to get hold while waiting. So, its ok to get your jars done early.

To answer your second question, it depends on which tek you are using to sterilize your jars. If you are applying tyvek over the lids (like you should) you can sterilize them all day without worrying about moisture loss.

I would advise you to sterilize correctly one time then to do unecessary re-sterilization. As long as you are using a PC with 15 psi capacity, an hour of cooking should do the trick.

Good luck with your grow, keep us informed.

I was trying to find where it's written, couldn't, but I'll put it out here anyway. It's been written that sterilizing and then waiting a few days before innoculating will let you know if you sterilized properly. If nothing grows in this test period, then you know you have sterilized properly. If it gets contaminated, then your sterilization didn't go properly and you would have likely lost your cakes to contams had you inoculated. This certainly won't prevent contams from entering at a later date, like when you inoculate, etc., but it's a good way of checking that your sterilization went well. As for keeping the uninnoculated jars in a warm place, this would encourage any contams not killed by sterilization (i.e., if you did not sterilize properly) to grow, letting you know that you botched sterilization. As for trying this myself, no, I haven't - I'm too damn impatient.

would not encourage growth if it was sterilized correctly. there would be nothing in the jars to grow. if the lid is on tight and it is in a clean place you should be fine. i have had sterilized jars sit around for a couple of weeks before and they worked fine.
