let wbs w/o polyfill breath?
    #4159521 - 05/10/05 10:55 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i've got some jars of wbs going but they are going super slow, they are even incubated at 86F. i was wondering if i should expose the pinhole inoculation point to give them at least some air exchange. lots of the jar's surface area...only 50% in the jars w/ the most myc are covered. i'm thinking it will open up my jars to contams because they aren't covered in myc.

its not like i have a dry verm layer to stop incoming contaminants.

I think you mean gas exchange, most people prefer to use tyvek or polyfil through an opening in the lid.

air exchange allows gas exchange, yes i know that most people use tyvek but i had none when i started the jars.
