Jar/incubating question
    #4115118 - 04/30/05 05:10 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey all, I was curious, when I start my jars for incubation, do I let sit so the lid is on the bottom or not. I am curious cause from what I've all read, it soudn like the jar should just sit normal but I seen osxme pics in the shroomery gallery that had them upside dowen. I have 1/2 pint wide mouth jars.

Here's the deal...

It doesn't really matter. Generally, people start with them upright (lid on top)... but because Co2 sinks, sometimes growth stalls. When this happens, people flip the jar over to let the Co2 "pour" out of the holes in the lid.

i even question whether the flipping of jars is necessary but i spose in some cases it is. ive never had to do it but with pint jars it might be a little more helpful

I flipped my jars after 7 days and the growth exploded. Be sure to get your foil or tape off as soon as you see some growth. :-)
