Incubation and Lighting
    #4267632 - 06/07/05 02:09 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hey, I'm wondering how critical light is at this stage. I started 8 days ago and I couldn't get the temp over 72. So now I changed over to the tub in tub with aquarium heater going and things are much better. I'm manually fanning the tub every 3-4 hours for gas exchange and was wondering if the ambient light from this will cause any pinning in my jars. BTW... the tubs are are not clear.

no need to fan while incubating you only need fresh air exchange while fruiting

why fan during colonization? you really don't need to. short amounts of light during this stage won't hurt that much, just don't make a habit of it. everytime you do that you are introducing contams taking a chance of it getting to your uncolonized cakes.
peace

Thanks guys, I though fanning was required at both stages. From now on I'll keep my nose outta there.

Also, light will neither help, nor hurt. I incubate on a shelf at normal room temperature, and jars are exposed to light from day one. There is no need to keep your jars in the dark.
