wbs tek - inoculation
    #4407087 - 07/15/05 08:33 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

hey everyone. i am about to prepare my first jars of wbs... they have soaked and all i am just waiting to pc them. according to the tek, you are supposed to fill each pint jar half way with wbs... if i do this, the needle will not reach the wbs during inoculation. is it alright to drop the spores on top of the wbs and shake, or should i fill each jar all the way? thanks for your help.

i never had a problem with it. remember to shake the jar a little after colonization begins, it really helps

The point of filling them 1/2 way is to allow for expansion of the grains during pc'ing and to allow the jars to be shaken during colonization.
You should fill them 1/2-3/4 of the way full(3/4 being a little too much from my experience).
About 2/3 is perfect,IMO.

When you inoculate you want to shoot the spores down the side of the jars anyway, not into the grain.

make sure to shake your jars after you pc to mix the wet WBS with the drier WBS. good luck!

i never got to see your post kronnyQ. i shot them into the grain. does it really make a difference? the WBS tek says to shake after inoculation anyways which would distribute the spores throughout the grain.
