Is it normal for mycelium to be thicker looking in some spots than others? And what is the best thing to do about excessive moisture in a jar that is about 15 to 20% colonized?

Thats a good question about the excessive moisture and I'll tell you one thing that excessive moisture is a breeding ground for contams in my experience. I tried putting some jars in the oven set on warm with the door open for awhile. I think it helped take out some of the moisture but not enough. Gotta be careful with heat you dont wanna fry those friendly spores. There's a question "what kind of tempertures can spores survive in?"

Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

I'd like to know why you think you have 'excessive moisture'. Is it just some condesation on the inside? Thats not to bad. Or does it look like the substrate is soaked? In which case, the excess moisture will find it's way to the bottom of your jar where it will likely remain uncolonized. The remainder of your cake will colonize and can be used as normal.

Themal death of spores occurs at 104 F. I believe.

One reason was because I spiked a couple of jars with 5cc (1/2 syringe) and the substrate just looked too wet. Also these were pint jars and when they were 50% colonized I turned them upside down and when the mycelium started to reach the bottom (now the top) there were alotta beads of water in the jar and I lost a couple to contams after they were past 50% colonized. I came to the conclusion that if I used just a little less water or more verm I mighta been better off. Whadda you think Max?
