Quick question about permeation of rye
    #4054452 - 04/14/05 01:32 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, I noticed that my rye jars are only partially permeated. The top 2/3 of the rye is completely permeated but the bottom 1/3 is only sparsely permeated by mycelium. There's a very clear difference in permeation between the upper and lower areas.

I have a feeling that this might have something to do with gas exchange, but I haven't found anything on Shroomery about this. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

Are you using a filter lid of some sort?

It sounds like a moisture problem to me more than anything. Water usually pools to the bottom of jars if content is off, and it's harder for mycelium to colonize that.

it could be caused by the lack of gas exchange or by the substrate actually being poorly moistened.

if you do not use filterlids so far,
you may want to check this out for various teks:

(actually shows both, tyvek and polyfill)

they will permit you contam free gas exchange :laugh:

I'm using polyfill lids. I soaked and simmered, if anything I was worried that the rye might be a little dry! If you case a jar that has not completely permeated (the bottom of the jar), will it still fruit?

Maybe I just need to wait a few more days, or maybe when I shook the jars, none of the mycelium made it to the bottom of the jar.

well, next time try that.

mix 170grams of rye with 150ml of water IN the jar.
let sit for a day.
stirr it up, not messign with water content, put the lid on, clave and use as normal.

i had great success by simply doing as stated above.
if of interested, im a great polyfill fan :laugh:

Looking at your pics, the rye is nice and evenly colonized. I had this in the beginning, but then the mycelium in the upper layer started to grow very quicly while the lower layer got left behind. Now I've got a solid block of mycelium and rye up top and uncolonized rye on the bottom. I just don't get it!
