Ruined by blue mold! For the second time in a row!
    #4452609 - 07/25/05 11:05 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Soaked my cracked corn for 24 hours, then PC'ed it at 15psi for 90 minutes instead of 70, which on my last try got me blue mold.

That was the lsat of my cracked corn, and I just picked up a bag of WBS... hopefully I don't get the same results again.

I don't know what I could be doing wrong... I wiped down the inside of my tub with a fairly strong bleach/water solution, and heated the tip of the needle until it got red hot. I didn't even get a whisp of white colinization in any of the three jars.

Chances are its either the syringe (it happens now and then, even from a vendor) or your inoculation procedures.. Cracked corn is shit from what I hear anyway, birdseed should treat you right. Stick with 90 minutes for PCing, no less, longer if you want, 90 should be plenty though.

You are doing a bunch of steps, any one could be your problem. I would suggest getting a few jars going, and let them sit for a week or so, without inoculating them to see if mold shows up. That will at least tell you if it is jar prep, or syringe prep. You just cut a bunch of steps you dont have to worry about. Using this approch, you can narrow it down to the problem. Once you get a good procedure going, stick with it exactly.
