Tape on Jars and my syringe, question
    #4192506 - 05/18/05 08:52 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys, just a fwe min ago, I was innoculating my jars, this time I had tape on top of the holes when I PCed them. When I was take the tape off, which was really really hard to get off, an a few of the jars, there was a sound of air movement, I would assume suction, this worries me abotu contam. SEcond, my syringe was dripping a fair bit, WHY.
Also, I bought my syringes from ralphstersspore. I paid for 2 cambos and he threw in a Panama syringe. BUt the syringe has nothign black in it. ALl I can see is some cloudy white thing floating, is the syringe useless.
SOme feedback would be awsome,

Nathan

the jars might be contam but if you're clean then you should be ok. spores are tiny so you shouldnt be worried about not seeing them, and the white stuff was most likely mycelium and thats not bad either, sort of good actually. youll get faster take off times since the spores dont have to germinate.

But its a fairly big peice of mycelium. I shake but it won't break apart. ALso I should have stated, I'm doign the BRF so hopefully the verm does it's job. Oh yeah, as for the mycelium, how long is it good for in that syringe.
Is that normal for the tape to be on there that bad, I could hardly peal it off, did I do somethign wroing.

well it sounds like the glue on the tape just hardened or something, that shouldnt even really matter as long as you got it off and back on. the myc shouldnt really break a part. but it will a bit once you shoot it out. the syringe should stay good for a couple months to even over a year depending on if all the spores germinated. also keep it at a cool temp.

you dont put tape over the holes before you cook, you do that after you inoc. Do you have a verm layer in the jar. That acts as a filter. When you removed the tape you had low presure in the jar and the outside air was pushed into the jar rapidly which could havve forced contams past the verm later. all depends. You will probably be okay but dont ever do it again. Just use foil when pc'ing

This works well. Use a tyvek filter as your lib but it is very important that you cover it with plastic wrap after you knock it up. If you dont cover it it wil loose its moistur and your cake wil dry out.
