After innoculation....
    #367436 - 08/05/01 10:28 PM (22 years, 6 months ago)

3 days ago I innoculated 12 jars and placed tape over the holes. They are now in a rubbermaid container in my closet with a heating pad keeping the temp at a constant 85 degrees. I have just a couple of simple questions.
Should the jars lids be kept tightly sealed or loosened up a bit?
Is it better to place jars upside down?

You've got your jars incubating at the perfect temperature. Keep the lids slightly loose (I turn each lid a 1/4 rotation) but remember that a heating pad will speed up evaporation, so a lid that's tighter than normal is desirable in your case. You may need to loosen the lids a little more in case you see a large amount of condensation developing. A small amount is fine, but too much can damage the cake. And you really don't need to flip your jars unless you have problems germinating. Hope this helps.

I'm fairly new at this as well but I've had good results so far. What I have done is keep the jars sealed tighlty until they are about 75% colonized then I loosen the lids to provide a little oxygen. I have done 40 jars (on three seprate occasions) and haven't had any contamination problems so far (*keeping fingers crossed*), and I'm not working in the most sterile conditions either. :)

Good Luck!
