PC'ed jars are shalling help
    #3894785 - 03/09/05 10:03 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I have a few questions for you guys and need someone to tell me why im losein half my PC'ed jars. ok first off some background info for you guys. im useing WBS and cleaning very well rince,soak,simmer tek. PC'in for 90 mins. as of now im doing WBS G2G. incubating @ 80F. Now I still call myself a newbie and started on cakes. As it stands this last PC would be my 3rd with WBS and everytime i inoculate i wait 5 or so days to see if the jars i just inoculated are doing ok. they seam great little white fuzzy spots all over the jars with some big chunks. after 8-12 days total i look to see if they need a shake and if they look good ill give them a good shake. Now this is when i start to have problems. It looks like right after the shake about half of my jars stop growing and die. most have some mycelium still showing but stall big time. they show no Contamination and smell fine. now i know it could be water content .... but what else could be going on? any help would be great. thanks

PS my cakes never stoped growin i used spore syringes and mycelium water ( i have not used eiter for the WBS. i have karo ready to go and plan to try that but would like to know what im doing wrong.)

If you are going to shake your jars, do it gently. Shake just enough to stir the mycelium around a bit. Don't shake the living crap out of them. You are beating the mycelium to death.
