cold shocking question..............??
    #4395981 - 07/12/05 03:45 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

my jars have been fully colonized for about a week or so now...there at 23 days. its been hot as hell out, been in the upper 80's & low 90's outside....about 75-80 degrees in the house....And anyways, was wondering if i could cold shock the pf jars while still in the jars by putting them in the fridge for about 12 hours without dunking them....anyone know if this would work or not, cause at the moment i have no way of getting the temp below 75 degrees in the house. which i fear that they will never pin if its gonna be so warm...any help apreceated...

I don't do it, just get a AC window unit, or put them in the basement, or if you get really desperate put water bottles in the freezer, then put the frozen water bottles in your terrarium..

scrape the dry verm layer off your cakes.
pop the cakes out of the jars.
add water to the jars.
put cakes back in the jars.
put lid back on the jars.
load jars into the frig.
keep jars in frig for 12 to 24 hours.

pull jars out of frig.
roll cakes in verm.
put cakes into fruiting chamber.

works great for me.

Regards.
