Incubation needed?
    #3970261 - 03/25/05 10:21 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

When people make grain spawns they use this "fandangled" incubator.

My question will a plain ole' water heater work? The temperature is consistent an in the lower 80's. I incubated rice cakes perfectly on a water heater.

Is an incubator a necessity when doing grain spawn method or just a luxury?

I incubate quart jars of rye grain on a shelf above my dresser in the bedroom at normal room temperature. There is no need to heat your jars beyond that point, as the increase in growth speed is minimal, but the risk of contaminants which are favored at higher temperatures increases. Now, if your room is very cold, you'll need to run a space heater or something to warm it up. 75F works great.

Cardboard box full of WBS quart jars, in closet with my H/W heater colonizes just fine.

Oh ok thanks :smile: Just wondering.  Newbies can quickly get "information overload" and panic
