Alufoil over polyfilled hole
    #3411820 - 11/26/04 12:24 PM (12 years, 10 days ago)

Hello humans!

I have some grainjars where the lid is pierced with a hole which I stuffed with Polyfill.
Now that popcorn jar is growing slower & slower.

Can that be caused by the fact that I cover the lids with alufoil (rather tight) as well?

Actually for my PF jars is the same, 2 layers of alufoil, innerst has 4 inoc holes and the outside one is wrapped tight around that. They grow slow as well.

Thanks for the help/answers!

I asked this on some other threads but thinking I get more attention by giving it separate attention myself....

I've been pondering this myself. So I did my last batch 1/2 covered and 1/2 not with a 1/4 inch polyfilled hole in the lid. They're both maturing the same.
What temp are you incubating at?

If you have polyfil, you can remove the foil. That is really only need while pc'ing to keep water out of the polyfil. Air molecules are small, as long as there are holes that aren't taped, they are getting air.
