Too much moisture?
    #3653196 - 01/20/05 01:00 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

My quart jars were at 25% done when I shook them. Now, only two of about seven have become fluffy again and started to really grow. I looked and saw that the other jars had just a tad bit more moisture content than the other jars that returned to rapid growth. Do you think that this little amount of moisture could have something to do with it?

How many days has it been since you shook your jars?

sounds like grain jars, could be early wetspot(contam) or just a lack of air exchange

I'd say to much moisture...and that can definatly cause slower growth. Water content is the KEY to quick colonization.

Yes, I used WBS. I simmered until the seeds cracked. Then I drained for about 1 hour. I'm thinking that mabye I had simmered the seed mabye a little too long. Could that be a problem?
