colonizing brf cakes without jars?
    #367236 - 08/05/01 05:18 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Would this work, make your cakes but instead of put them in jars form them into a cakelike shape and put them in a sterile enviroment(i.e. terrarium) and innoculate them by spraying the syringe right on the lip of the cake, at 4 points, so it spills down the side(like it would in a jar). I have a feeling if you could get an air tight chamber, with an "exhaust" or hole fitted with a filter, and an air pump running through a hepa air filter that this would be tremendously better than the cake sitting in a jar. what do you think? help, I guess I will experiment with this soon.

the exhaust would be for the bad air to be pushed out, and the air filtered air pump would push new clean air in. sorry for miscommunication.

You're better off sticking with the jars. However, in order to do what you're thinking of, you'd also need to keep the humidity at a high level, using any number of methods to do this. During mycelium growth, there needs to be high levels of CO2 as well as high humidity. So make sure you're not introducing fresh air to the chamber by misting it or anything like that. The air pump would probably dry your cakes out. I've never tried doing it that way, but I think you need to think through your plan a little more before going ahead with it.

my theory alum can is that the extra clean air being pumped in will rapidly speed up the process, i dunno, for all i know people do this on a regular basis. thanks matty.
