Refrigerating colonized jars?
    #4283373 - 06/11/05 02:27 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I'm using a slightly modified magash tek (rye grain -> coir casings) for my first grow. Well, I put a bit too much spore solution in one of the jars (widemouth pints), and it's colonized much faster than the others. I inoculated the jars on Tuesday afternoon, they've been in my incubator since then, and now on Saturday morning the jars look like this:


(The coins are for weight. That's a submersible water heater you see over to the right)

I was hoping to case all three jars at once. From what I gather, it's alright to refrigerate jars, but would there be any ill effects from refrigerating one jar for, say, a week while I wait for the others to catch up and then casing all three together? Should I refrigerate the other two as well for a bit when they've fully colonized so they're on the same "level"? Your advice is valued. Thanks in advance.

Refrigeration is fine, but you don't even need to do that. A cool place in your basement or cellar is fine for storing substrate.

Well, perhaps I should have clarified - my question is directed more at the fruiting process. Will it matter that one jar had been stored for a while when I mix them all up to case?

No it won't matter, because you're going to reincubate the casings.
