AFOAF'S rye dries out during incubation, help please..
    #3605392 - 01/09/05 10:43 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Rye that AFOAF'S incubating seems to dry out on the bottom of every jar and on one whole side (he thinks the dried up side is touching the incubator wall).

Anyways, his lid setup is tyvek, then lid (one large hole in middle, and one small hole near side for inocc..like Magash's), and then the ring.

I soak for 24 hours, simmer until I see approx. 5% of grains burst, and pc for 1 hour. It looks fine after coming out of the pc. But after a few days in the inubator, some of it starts to shrivel and looks bone dry.

Any suggestions on what to do would be greatly appreciated.

Try putting perlite damp with .03% h202 water at the bottom of the incubator, covering that with aluminum foil, then jars on top of this. This way, the perlite raises the humidity in the incubator and water will not evaporate out of your jars. I do this, though I never have had a problem with jars drying out. Works fine. GL.

My foaf uses a gallon jar of water, with a heating wire around it, in his incubator system to keep humidity HIGH (around 80+%). He does so - BECAUSE - rh seeks to average itself out, given the chance.

If your incubator has a very LOW rh & your jars have a high internal rh, you get gas/moisture exchange through the tyvek until they average out. Which WILL cause jars to LOOSE moisture.

Sounds like that may be your problem I.,E., jars loosing moisture & getting to DRY
