My New LC "Jars"
    #4289722 - 06/13/05 02:48 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

well i found that these Snapple bottles work very well. all i did was drill a hole in the top lid and then P.C. them.




each bottle has 300cc water/1 table spoon of Karo. (these are all pre-pc)

so you sealed them airtight?

not such a bright idea.

yes your lc will dies if it doesn't have air if you plan on long term storage. But i have had plent of instances with my LC lasting a month or more with just the air in the sealed bottle. POlyfill es no bueno in my opinion because it gets wet and gross

hmm i wonder if the air inside will be sufficiant.
hope so for you but if you dislike using polyfill, you could have also used tyvek.

tyvek itselt wont get "gross or moist" and its fine to go, actually i used
polyfill on my test jars and went successfully without it getting jucky.

I had a 1/2 pint of Karo with a clone in it. Although I had it in the fridge, it was sealed up tightly in there for about a year. I found it near the back of the fridge and tried it just for the hell of it. It really didn't look to good at all. LOL. I'm not sure if it was the lack of fresh air or yeast, but it did work with some cakes. Rather well too. Don't forget when some store cultures in vacuum tubes or shit like that, they last for decades. BUT! in order to get the maximium growth out of your cultures, you'll need to have a filtered lid of some kind.

ive found the easiest way to do an LC is to use a pint or 1/2 pint jar and just flip the lid upside down and dont screw the top on all the way. Every 2 days, i screw the lid on tight and shake the jars to airate the water. I have never had a problem with contams with this method.

they work fine. i tested this before i made 4 more. you do not need allot of air exchange with LCs.

Where'd ya hear that bad info? That's not true at all. CO2 will build up in an unfiltered jar and growth will indeed start to stall or slow down.

hotnutz is right for optimal super thick longest lasting bestest ever LC you do need air exchange. But for the average grower you dont because you use it all in a couple months and there is sufficent growth. If you wanted to keep it for a year air exchange is needed. But many a people have proved it works fine without.
