anyone have a tip on lagging cakes (i'm not going out like a sucker)
    #4414254 - 07/17/05 11:17 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I've got a few jars going here (B+, BRF) and they've colonized at a nice quick rate so far, but there are just a couple stubborn spots where things have slowed,

should i just be more patient or is there anything I can do to jumpstart these suckers?

I think i read a post on here that said it can help to take off the lids and get some air in there?

Do not take off the lids!~
You will fuck up your jars by taking off the lids!~

Do you have tape over the inoculation holes on the jar lids?
If you do...remove the tape.

Do you have Alum foil over the top of the jar lid?
If you do...take that off.


If you don't have tape or Alum foil on top of the lids...

Flip your jar so the lid side is down...the CO2 will escape and the jar will take off again.

When the jar stalls and you only have to colonize the bottom of the cake...
Flip the jar over and whap the the lid onto your hand to dislodge the cake from the inside of the jar so the cake is loose inside the jar.
Keep the jar upside down with the lid side down for a few days...and the bottom of the cake will colonize.

good luck!~

Just give them the time they need, half of my jars were slow to start pinning and I thought they were duds, now I got so many shrooms,
I could kick myself for thinking that.
