This is my first time working w/ wbs - what is "fully colonized" for wbs? mine right now is not shakable - just one quart sized clump but is till see some brown from the wbs (not much). do i wait till its 100% white?

Same as all jars, Wait until it's completly white.
You can shake after there's some white to help distrubute the my.c for faster colonization but i wouldn't shake more than once cuz the myc. has to recover after every shake. Gl

If you shook too much, could it cause the jars to stall a bit? How do you know if you have gotten the right moisture content? My FOAF innoct a few quart jars of WBS with spores, and it has been a couple weeks without any white showing up. The only good myc he saw growing was in one where he put a chunk from a BRF jar in it.(which was shaken and now he can't see anything.) The jars done with a liquid culture haven't shown any signs of myc either.(all incubated at 84*F, the grains were soaked for 24 hours and then pressure cooked for 60 min at 15PSI. They did seem not as wet after PCing them.)

I guess all he can do is wait, but he really wants to get this right. Any advice, or pointing me to extra info to read would be appreciated.
