inoculation complete...some things I've learned
    #4436892 - 07/22/05 04:36 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Well I sorted through my best looking jars and found all of the ones without cracks in them.  The syringe maneuvers were a little shaky at first but I quickly learned how to press lightly, shake it around, torch it, etc and although I may have some uneven distribution I think they'll be fine.  I had 10 jars and had to trash 3 cracked ones.

Just for the hell of it I opened the cracked ones and found a dry vermiculite layer at the top, and the nicely formed yet barren "cake" plopped right out, and stayed in form even while hitting the trash in the trash can.  I guess I kind of accidentally learned how to remove the cake before I'm even at that stage :wink:.

I put the jars in a coverless Rubbermaid container in my closet, which ranges from 76-82 daily :smile:.  Should I pop the cover on or just leave it off?  Also, should I keep the jar lids tight? 

I guess all I can do now is wait.

i would invest in a tub in tub
only like $5 and will improve yr colonization time drastically
those temps are too low and it's better to keep a consistent temp.
