extreme condensation, friend psyched out
    #3399512 - 11/23/04 06:54 PM (13 years, 3 hours ago)

Hey my friend is getting all psyched out cause his inoculation jars of grain all of a sudden(7/8 done colonizing) has standing water on the bottom of both jars, at first just a little but now in only a day it has gone up 1/8 of the jar, the only thing he knew to do was drop the temperature(been at 82-84 F), he is getting worried that he killed them, can that happen if it is submerged in water and is there anything else I can tell him to do or tell him they'll be fine so he stops freaking out?
the strain is blue meanies, been kept in a closet for 21 days now, standing water has only started happening in past 2 days, no big changes in temperature

flip them over and let the water come out of say, the air source.

If the bottum doesnt colonize for whatever reason, you can always scrape off the uncolonized media.

You shouldnt turn grain jars upsidedown. The tyvek can become contaminated if left to sit in water like that. That is only for the PF Tek because of the dry verm layer.
