Preperation of Substrate in advance of Inocculation? Also, your thoughts on the Z-Strain?
    #4162237 - 05/11/05 04:46 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

My grand-ma-ma wants to know if you could prepare your substrate cakes before inocculating them. She has all the materials to start making substrate but hasn't ordered a spore syringe yet. Would it be possible for her to fill the jars with substrate and then throw them in the fridge until the spore syringe comes?

This may be a dumb question but she really wants to get started with this but she's run out of money and has to wait until next week to order the syringe (goddamn social security).

Also, she wants to know what the general feeling on the Z-Strain of Cubes are. She wants to start off with those.

She thanks you.

It's best to prepare the jars a day or so before inoculation. The less time you have the mix in the jars, the better. Contams are creepy buggers. It's good to see that you're enthusiastic. But, remember... the best advice someone can give you is to be patient. If you don't have patience than you'll never succeed. I know you'll do well.

Wait until you have the syringes to mix up the jars. Water content is a tricky mofo to figure out.
