how long will colonized grain last?
    #4170235 - 05/13/05 11:46 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Say I had 12 jars or so left over of fully colonized grain in quarts but i didn't want to spawn it or fruit it just yet. How long will they be usable for if I just don't do anything with them for a couple weeks? Will the mycelium die?

putting them in the frig or a nice cool place is ideal.

I think you may be able to stick em in your fridge and slow down the mycelium... and use em' up to a month later.

I'd also like to know... I've heard too many different answers on this one..

i know putting them in the fridge would slow it down and spawning it to straw and incubating it later would give it a nice warm kick to get started again. But just out of curiousity, what would happen if i just left them in the incubator?

the mycelium would keep eating away at the grain...

and the substrate would start shrinking away.

looks pretty sad!~

and contams might take over.

I did this once...when I had my heart attack.

left everything in the incubators...for several months.

:crazy:

gross. I would have thought that eventually, it'd grow shroomies. Well.. if you can't use em for a few weeks.. then at least you can grow invitro right?? Or even do some solo cup casings??
