Well Water Question
    #3908525 - 03/12/05 07:52 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My last two attempts at PF Tek have resulted in nice cakes that refuse to pin. I was wondering if the well water pH, minerals, etc. may have something to do with the failures. Hardness is about 14-16 grains per gallon and pH is 7.9.
Thanks, in advance, for any help.

I am currently on well water with no softeners and it works fine for me.

Have you ever had this problem? I have perfect looking cakes but they simply will not pin. I am really frustrated! I've had at least some success on every other attempt (about 8 or 9 times, so far).

Sure, I had alot of problems getting cakes to pin when I first started out. Did you dunk them? Are they getting fresh air exchange and 12 hours of light? Most importantly, is your relative humidity 96%+?

I'll do it. Do I need to refrigerate as well?

Your call on that one. I know cold shocking helps some strains induce pinning on cakes.

Thanks, Diver! I'm going to try cold shocking two and two I won't and see what happens. (These are B+, btw)

You're welcome. Good plan, always split your batch to test and find out what works best.
