Say if I were too stick my jars into 84-86 degree water regulated with a fishheater and the water only came up to the the beginning of the lid would this work for incubation?

as long as you put into consideration of evaporating water and not letting it drip into your jars. not the way i would recomaend though cause contams love wet warm places.

I'm not sure if it would mess up the water level inside of the jars because of evaporation and humidification.  And there's also the chance a jar might tip over, thus messing everything up (raising water level, etc etc).  I think it's worth a shot, but perhaps only fill up the water to halfway up the jars.  What you could also do, is set up a tub-in-tub (even if it's on a small scale).

Basically one tub has water in it with a fishtank heater, and another tub is set inside of that with a lid and blanket put over the top (I even put a blanket under mine to prevent heat loss).  The heated water keeps the second tub at around the same temperature (maybe a couple degrees cooler)... and you can stick all your jars in there.  They work very nice in my opinion, it is what I use right now to incubate my jars and casings. :smile:

Hope that helps!

Ah yes, I forgot about the contam issue.  I would make the incubation water a mixture of H2O2 if you decide to go that route.
