QUICK! wbs jars question
    #4408149 - 07/15/05 04:48 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i pc'ed my first wbs jars today. the tek says to shake them after the pc'ing to evenly distribute water levels or something. the thing is, the wbs is all clumped together inside the jar so when i shake it it all moves together... did i do something wrong?

Use oven mits, baseball glove, inflated small tire, hard pad on chair - or whatever to bang them against. WBS should break apart. If not - you blundered somewhere.


#5 is after PC'ing

You got to shake that shit like you mean it, and make sure your jars are only filled 1/2-2/3 of the way..I can do 3/4 of the way up or more, leaving like no room to shake, but you just shake the hell out of them.

Clumping though isnt a great sign, often to much water is in there. How did you prep them? Did you strain for a long time, like at least an hour?

I have my own way of doing wbs jars and the wbs always clumps together. I don't really worry to much about shaking unless there is parts on the bottom that hasn't colonized. then I just move stuff around enough to make sure some air gets where it needs to be. I use pint jars and I have had equador finish a jar in about 10 days with tyvek and ring on top. Your jars will still work as long as you don't see excessive amount of water in them.

Make sure you are shaking them when they are still HOT! :thumbup:
