If its in the jar, you could take it out. You need to give it the three pinning triggers, 10 degree temp drop FRESH AIR and light. Did you dunk and roll? Cold Shock? Got a terrerium? You got alot of reading to do and a hell of alot of writing (about your setup and how your caring for it) to do if you expect any help. Pins take 3-14 days to show up too, so have patience.

Three triggers to pinning...

1 - Drop in Co2 levels. This can be done by fanning the chamber a few times a day. Remember that Co2 is heavier than oxygen, so it sinks to the bottom of the chamber. Make sure to fan sternly enough to move the Co2 up and out.

2 - A 10 degree drop in Temperature from the incubation temps.

3 - Light. Sunlight is the best, followed by a flourescent bulb which can be had at Home Depot for like 6$.

Cakes can take up to 3 weeks to pin, so be patient. Good Luck!

pinning while still iin the jar is pinning "invitro" which i believe is the basis of Hippie3's tek from mycotopia...

i always birth my jars at 3 days past full colonization, and never wait for invitro pinning
