How fucked am I? OMG I'm so dumb :(
    #4035430 - 04/09/05 10:14 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Today, while looking at my beautiful pins and starting baby shroomies, I started thinking about how they probably don't have a strong enough light to grow towards (they had a 15W); so i decided to switch the bulb to a 60W. Stupid story short, I had to go to work for 6 and 1/2 hours (they surprised me with an extra long day). While at work I call my friend so he could go and shut the light off because i thought that it would be getting too hot. The dick he is, doesn't go and shut off the light (punk :frown:). So I rush home to check on the cakes, and open the chamber, which is a very (too) insulated freezer and I look at the thermometer and basically shit my pants. The Temp is at 120f (!). OMG I'm so pissed.... I looked at the cakes, the GT's which have the pins (the B+ haven't started pinning yet, but i has a lot of aerial myc.) look slightly blued which i don't take as a good sign... the baby shroomies don't look great either....

What do you guys (and you rare girls in this industry) think about my conundrum?
Will the cakes survive?
You may choose only one
Yes
No

Is dunking alright after/during pinning and the b+ cakes have like 1/3" of aerial mycelium. Will it be hurt too much?

Dunking is okay during pinning. Just be careful to not knock off all the pins when submerging. Many of the pins will survive a 24 hr dunk, sometimes they even grow normally under the water.

Actually it will more than likely kill the pins, but better to kill a bunch of pins than have the whole cake die.

Is the 120 degrees the temp of the cakes or the readout on the thermometer? There is a difference you know. If you take an outside thermometer, as an example, the temp will read higher than the actual temps if the gage is in direct sunlight or in a direct path of another heat source. Yesterday the outside temp was 72 degrees but my thermometer was reading 100 because it was in direct sunlight. That's a 28 degree difference.

I would take a sterilized meat thermometer (the pen type) and take a direct reading into the cake. I'll bet the cakes are lower than you think.

Ariel hyphae, isnt pins. If there are pins/primordia (little white balls, knots) then you shouldnt dunk, but fuzzy cakes can be dunked just fine.

Not a very good idea to start sticking tools (like a thermometer) into you sterile cake that your trying to not contam. Especially since, at this point the cakes will have cooled down and not even read a temp anymore. Wont do any good. Your right though, the cakes were probably lower then that.

Either way cleaning off pins and extraneous debris will make for a much better first flush!

Thanks For the suggestions, I cleaned off the pins and took them last night. The trip was decent. I weighed them to 15g

it works, my grandmother used to make a tonic with willow bark for headaces, it
stopped working as the headaches got worse, she then introduced me to mushrooms
and they worked better than anything else... it's paert of what led me into
cultivating them because as farmland grew more scarce in the area I was in the
mushrooms did too... I gave my mother in law 2 capsules about 8 months ago
and she hasnt complained of a severe headache since.

A 15W light is overkill.

A 15W is overkill? It wasn't for me, at least the way I had it positioned. I'm going to switch from the 15 to a fluoro that'll attach to the lid and itll be sweet and it sure as hell wont get the temp to 120+
