Are My Jars Ruined ??
    #4031590 - 04/08/05 06:16 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

After using a bogus spore syringe I have started  all over again.  When I took the lids and foil off of my first jars I noticed that the holes from the lids had punched through the foil underneath so I put the foil on top this time.  When I took the jars out and knocked them up the substrate seemed a little wet (when I shake them it doesn't really move but I can hear the verm layer on top moving).  I thought I sealed them pretty well but I noticed that there was condensation on the lids when I took of the foil.  Should I be worried or is there still a chance for my spores.  Also should rubbing alcohol be used on the needle while knocking them up or could that harm the spores.  *sigh* I'm such a noob  :rolleyes:

Im pretty sure this is fine. A FOAF gets condensation on his lids sometimes but it hasnt seemed to affect it much. Rubbing alcohol is fine so long as you arent DIPPING the needle into it...Just wipe it off and any alcohol on the outside of the needle should evaporate very quickly.

The thing with cleaning the needle between jars seems like it isn't necessary. If you pressure cooked your jars, which you should have if you are the least bit serious about this hobby, then your jars should not have any contams to spread from one to the other.

I did pressure cook my jars so thats not what I was worried about. I was more worried about airborne contams. I used the oven method when inoculating but I just wanted to make sure. Also how often should I change the water in my incubator? I put in 3/8 cup of peroxide for every 1 1/2 gallons so how long should I wait.

If your jars haven't been contaminated, give them time, germination can take a while sometimes, have patience. Don't worry about condensation on the lid, it always happens to me when I PC and my jars have all been fine. As for your water, if you're using a tub-in-tub system you can just put a bit of bleach in the water and never have to worry about changing it.
