3:1 Ratio with WBS:Water?
    #4170856 - 05/13/05 02:52 PM (13 years, 11 days ago)

I mixed up some WBS 3:1 with water and PC'd for an hour. The jars looked great, but after incubating for a week there is little myc. growth. I only incubate at about 75 but i usually have some decent strong growth by day 7. What could have went wrong? Im getting ready to do some more jars today. Should i try maybe a bit more water? I mixed 1.5 cups WBS to .5 cup water last time.

so should i add a tad bit more water this time?  Or just keep it the same 3:1?

When i say add more water im talking like an extra tablespoon.

I don't want to get them too wet thought, because my last WBS jars were a little wet and colonized very well, but ended up contaming. :frown:

As many will tell you.. it's really up to your experiance with the grain. Not every birdseed is the same. Some have more millet.. some have more black sunflower seeds.. etc etc. This all effects how much h2o that it as a whole soaks up. If your jars were too wet last time.. add less h2o.... and vice verse.

Hope that helped
