not inoculating all four holes?
    #3450346 - 12/05/04 04:16 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

When I went to inoculate the ten half pint PF jars I started in the morning, I found that only about half of the holes I punched in the lids were big enough for the needle. No jar had four viable holes, most had two, one had only one hole large enough. I used between one and two ccs per jar in the holes I was able to get into. Now the jars are cooking in my new incubator. I guess this will be a wait and see trial, but I was wondering if anyone out there had had luck inoculating at only one or two sites.

What's the point of innocing four holes when you do PF tek, does it just colonize that much slower than grain? Innocing was tense enough when I only had to hit each jar once, four just seems like there'd eb too many contam vectors

I only innoc 2 holes. All it will do is slow it down a little. One of the teks says only to innoc 2 holes, so their is nothing wrong with it.

the spores have four places to spread from when you innoc with four holes as opposed to two
it just saves time in the long run
the same with how you are supposed to innoc with the needle against the glass, so that it slides down the substrate
