Paranoid newb incubation temperature question
    #3995907 - 03/31/05 05:24 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I inoculated 12 PF jars this morning with some B+. I stacked them in a large sterile metal pot and stuck a hot water bottle in there for a little extra heat kick. This morning when I did this I didn't have thermometer.

This afternoon about 4 hours after doing this I got my hands on a thermometer and measured the temperature in my incubation pot to be 86 deg. Considering the water bottle had to cool down over time I'm a little worried that I may have over heated and killed the spores this morning when I first put the hot bottle in the incubator.

Isn't it at about 91 deg that the spores can die? How long to they have to be at this temp to die? Am I being paranoid as usual?

This stuff's way scarier to start growing than my green friend. A lot less room for newbie errors. :shake:

hmmm, you should just go to the store and buy two rubbermaids. Stack them and fill the gap between them with water. Then get a 5 gallon aquarium heater and put it in there. Set it low at first and work your way up till you find the right temp. Be patient. Its easier and more consistent that a hot water bottle.

the death temp of spores is 106 degrees, you have to remember that our bodies are 98.6 degrees if water feels hot to you its well over 100 degrees 91 degrees would feel luke warm.. and the tub in tub incubator is the best way to go...
