I need some help, just want to make sure i'm right
    #3867034 - 03/04/05 10:58 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Last night I made 1/2 pint jars, PF-Tek. What I did was (just want to make sure I did it all correct). After adding the verm. and the BRF, I banded the jar tightly and then put tape over the holes and then aluminum over the each jars. I used a vegetable steamer and steam for 70 minutes, I let it cool over night. This morning I inject the spores using the Oven Inoculation method.

Found Here Scroll a little bit down.

When I put the spores in, first I flamed the needle then wiped it with rubbing alcohol. then do the inject the holes, after each jar I flamed it and wiped it with alcohol. I did 8 Jars.

It's now incubating in the dark at 82 F. In my incubator the humidity is 30%. Do I need to worry about humidity during Mycelial growth?

So what I did sound good, I hope I did ok, hope I don't get any contams! Please tell me what you think!! Hope it works!! *prays*

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

You didn't need to put tape over the holes pre pressure cooking. All you need is that layer of foil to keep moisture out during PC'ing. If you haven't already done so, go ahead and remove that tape covering the holes. Long as you have a dry verm barrier, that is all the protection you need. Anything extra is just choking the jars off unnecessarily.

Everything else sounds good. You don't need to worry about humidity in your incubator.

Good luck

Don't use an oven for a flowhood type of rig. Ovens are filthy. But you should be fine for the PF tek. Now if you used 1 quarts without the lids off for let's say G2G, not a good idea. You shoud be O.K. Good luck man! Don't let me scare you, you sound all good. Just x-nay the oven tek next time.

Diver, I already steam them, right now there in the incubator with tape over the hole's, when I get home should I take the tape off or leave it on them?

sounds good to me i just hope you let the jars cool long enough after sterilization cuz if not youre gonna be very disappointed, cooling goes from about 8 hours to over night.

So, Diver, I already PC'ed. When I get home should I take the tape off the jars in the incubator?

Yes. Take the tape off. You are going to need holes for gas exchange. The vermiculite barrier will act as a fiter.
