cooked substrate!!!!
    #357844 - 07/20/01 04:39 AM (16 years, 4 months ago)

Recently i received a kit from the sporechicks. When sterilizing my substrate the rice that was in them cooked in one of the jars. Me being a newbie (and retarded) innoculated it anyway. Suprised to say that some of the mycelium started growing but there was not a lot to grow because of lack of space. So i took it out of the jar and made a tiny casing chamber. Is this good???

what do you mean the rice cooked? if you took it out of the jar when it wasnt 100% colonized then you are probably going to get a contam. if there was mycelium groing then you shouldve left it in the jar. whatever the hell cooked rice is theres probably no reason why it wouldnt work. oh well its just one out of twelve right? you shouldve e-mailed sporechicks before you did something like that. if the casing doesnt get a contam then dont treat it like a casing just yet. let it sit with saran wrap over it with only 3 or four holes on it and once youre other cakes are done then add more holes (unless tiny pieces of mycelium start popping up before the other cakes or fully colonized then add more holes) and then treat it like a normal casing. i just re-read youre question and im thinking that maybe the cake was fully colonized? if it was then you did the right thing, but if you didnt then do what i said to do.

just because you stick feathers up youre butt does not make you a chicken.

yeah the rice puffed out and was fully cooked! But i took it out (not fully colonized) because it was REAL tight in there. I don't think the mycelium could have fully colonized in it. Some was growing in there though. By the way it was only 1/12. So far the other 11 are perfectly fine. No contams in 5 90% colonized and the other 6 are just starting to grow mycelium :-)

you obviously have no clue what you were getting into, so just follow the instructions to you tek down to the tiniest detail until you get a hang of it....

You're right i don't know what i'm getting into. So far I have followed the instructions but this one jar just happened to turn out this way. It was just a question.

I think I may have run into a similar problem...

I didn't have access to a PC so I did a boil. I used a verm/brf mix. I followed the video that was recently written off as outdated. I followed my moisture mix properly or so I thought..  I missed the part about keeping the jars off the bottom of the pot for that extreme heat. Is there a chance that with a little extra moisture and the flour I cooked my substrate?

look at these pics and lemme know what you think.  It seems three of ten jars are congieled on the bottom and up the sides on my innoc points. This kinda leads me to think its colonization, but isn't fluffy white by any means. Has anyone had a jar look like this before?
