colonizing minimums
    #4037117 - 04/10/05 02:37 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

My house is always around the low 70's and i cannot find a way to heat my jars right now. My heating pad burnt my last batch. Will they still colonize successfully at such a low temperature? What can i do to get them a little warmer?

Can't put together a TiT? You could always stick them in your computer case I guess lol. Just don't play any games though, or you'll get that video card cookin'.

Well i could do a TiT. But the only heating element i have is the heating pad. IT is old and flucuates badly. Right now i have a thick towel over it will the jars on top. Hoping ot raise it a little bit. I am scared to burn the jars though so i keep it on low. How would i make a TiT with a heating pad?

If your heating pad isn't reliable then you probably shouldn't use it. You should think about investing $30 in a new TiT setup with a submersible fish tank heater. All of my jars were colonized by the 13th day in mine.

Yes they will colonize at that temp, just slowly.

To cold, is better then too hot. Dont burn your babies with that pad..sitting jars directly on the pad (a towel doesnt really do much of shit if you still set the jars right on it) will quite likly do that. It will also likly dry out your jars, and then they wont colonize. Find a warm cabnent (towel closet, kitchen cabinent, whatever) and stick them there. Remember heat rises too..so try and get the top of a cabinent or closet. Maybe one above the stove or something if it doesnt get to warm ect.
