What is the purpose of....
    #4301796 - 06/16/05 12:46 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

shaking WBS jars? My jars colonize completely white on the outside, yet when i shake them the mycellium seems to dissappear, though i can still see a little surrounding each seed, but after 2 days the jars are recolonized again. should i shake em every day? how many times should i let them colonize completely before casing?

shake your jars once when they are about 30 % colinized. then dont shake em again.

the whole purpose of shaking is to spread the mycellium around for faster colonization

Shaking them breaks up the mycelium and allows it to come into contact with other grains in the jar that are still uncollonized.  You are seeing less mycelium because the grain is getting redistributed when you shake.

This speeds up the colonization of the grain.  However, it's been noticed that shaking often will slow down the growth because it takes some time for the mycelium to recover after being moved around.  Most only shake their jars twice.  Once right after the PCing while the grains are still hot.  Then a second time after the jar is about 20%-50% colonized.  Somewhere around in there. Some also shake their jars right after inoculating which would make three shakes. 

But shaking everyday is going to make it go slower.  I wouldn't recommend that.

Good luck :thumbup:

Shake once at 15-30%...to spread it around. Then sometimes, at 80%, if theres a side not colonizing, I shake it up real good and hard..usually a few days later the whole thing comes up nice and solid and even everywhere.

I second that. I shake once around 16 / 18%. Anymore slows colonization. But, as Scat stated, if a jar stalls around 75 / 80%, another shaking may get it going again.

the reason for shaking is obvious.
This is what happens if you dont.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
